Please, Parents. Help your children and your teachers + the country. School on Monday has to be the LAST resort, not the first. We must ALL be so, again, please, if they can, they MUST and then you’ll help us help you. https://t.co/uSLnhpM9Sw

You should only send your child to school on Monday if you have to, because your work is critical to our COVID-19 response. If you are able to keep your child at home, you should. https://t.co/n1B1gngVWr

A reminder that children of keyworkers and vulnerable groups can come to school on Monday at 9am. Just drop us an email to let us know you’re coming. Let’s do it 👊

Uniform

*The Student Commission met with Mr McMillan to ask if students can be allowed to wear nail varnish to school.  He has agreed a trial run until Easter.  Provided nails are an APPROPRIATE LENGTH, students may wear nail varnish from Monday.  Earrings are still banned.  Thank you.

We have a strict uniform policy and a zero tolerance approach at the Academy which aims to give students a sense of pride and to aid the outstanding behaviour and reputation we already have.  Parents should note the following:

  • Please note that as well as adhering to our core uniform list (A4 minimum size bag, equipment, blazer, white shirt, navy V-neck jumper, tie, black trousers/pleated skirt, proper black school shoes, no trainers, no makeup), students are not permitted to wear any jewellery apart from a watch.  This includes earrings and tongue piercings. 
  • We also have a PE kit uniform.
  • We have no rules about hairstyles/colour and students may style this as they wish.  However hair bands etc. should be plain black or navy.
  • No Charity wristbands are to be worn.
  • If parents wish to have their child’s ears pierced we advise doing this at the start of the summer holidays so that they can be removed more easily during school time.  We do not accept plasters over ears to cover earrings or any other concession – they must be removed in school time.
  • Year Ties – Each year group will be required to wear the tie colour that corresponds to their year. Below are the colours for each year group.
  • Year 7 – Blue
  • Year 8 – Red
  • Year 9 – Yellow
  • Year 10 – Green
  • Year 11 – Purple

    Students who are not in correct uniform will be placed in our Referral/Isolation room until the situation has been resolved.  No student with jewellery / earrings or incorrect uniform will ever be allowed into lessons.
