14th February 2014 Dear Parent/Carer Academy Uniform The Hazeley Academy Emperor Drive, Hazeley Milton Keynes, MK8 0PT Tel: 01908 555620 Fax: 01908 508357 www.hazeley.milton-keynes.sch.uk [email protected] Students attending the Hazeley Academy are praised by visitors for wearing the Academy uniform with pride, to those students; thank you. There is however, a minority of students impacting upon their own learning and that of others through their continued persistence of not adhering to the Academy dress code; we are asking for parental support to ensure that the expectations regarding uniform are maintained by all students. In order to reward those wearing their uniform with pride, we are continuing to issue positive achievement points and the VIVOs linked to these points. To improve the standard of uniform of those students that aren’t getting it right, we are continuing to sanction via the Expectations cards. A new card will be issued to all students after half-term. In addition to these systems, personal tutors will be monitoring students’ uniform on a daily basis in registration and issuing one behaviour point per day that a student is not adhering to the Academy dress code, until such a time that the issue is rectified. As we approach the half-term holiday, you may be making new uniform purchases or making a trip to the hairdressers with your son or daughter. Please follow the Academy’s Dress code to ensure they do not accrue behaviour points for wearing inappropriate clothing, jewellery or having hair colour. Trousers The current trend of skinny trousers continues. Students are not permitted to wear black jeans, skinny jeans, leggings or skin-tight trousers even if they have been purchased from a shop’s ‘school uniform’ range. We appreciate it can be challenging when making this purchase particularly with a teenager who wants to look cool, however trousers should be formal ‘office’ style, not very tight at any point down the leg. Jumpers and hoodies Cardigans, non V-neck jumpers or hoodies are not permitted in the dress code. A number of students wear a hoodie under their blazer as a coat in the cold weather and whilst this is acceptable to and from the Academy, it must be removed and placed in a locker for the duration of the Academy day. Jewellery and hair colour Some students are pushing the boundaries with facial piercings and hair colour. Students may wear one pair of stud earrings (removed for PE) but are not permitted to have more than one earring in each ear, wear a nose stud or other facial piercing. Having bright pink/purple/blue streaks in hair is also currently popular. Please do not allow your daughter or son to dye their hair a bright fashion colour; extra cost is incurred when they are asked to dye it back to normal. Continued/… Principal: Mark Bennison MA, BSc(Hons), NPQH, FRSA An 11 – 19 Specialist Science College and IB World School We do recognise that there can be occurrences when a student is unable to be in full uniform, on these occasions, we ask that there is a note in the student’s planner from you acknowledging this. When students persistently fail to comply with adhering to the dress code we will internally isolate them until the matter can be resolved. You will be contacted prior to the isolation. This is an extreme measure and is something that we can avoid with the support of students and parents. Thank you very much for your continued support with this matter.
