Make-Up: Excessive make-up is unnecessary and should not be worn. If  make-up does not comply with academy policy then the student will be sent to their Head of Phase/ SLT and will be required to wash it off – a period of isolation will be issued. Appropriate make-up is allowed and is defined as: foundation
(appropriate to the student’s skin tone), black or brown mascara which should be worn discretely, a small amount of neutral eye shadow if required. No eyeliner, blusher or bronzer is to be worn.

Hairstyles: Hairstyles should not reflect the extremes of ‘youth culture’, for example shaved lines and patterns on the side of the head. Hair should be cut no shorter than a Grade 2 and patterns must not be cut into the hair. Hair colouring must be subtle and in natural colours – no pinks, reds blues, two tone colour patterns or dip dye. Students with inappropriate hairstyles will be sent to the Head of Phase/ SLT and placed in Isolation.

Tattoos: Tattoos or body piercings must not be visible.

PE Uniform

The correct PE kit must be brought to every PE lesson. If a student is excused from a PE lesson they are still required to bring their PE kit in order to participate in lessons, for example as an umpire. If students do not have the correct PE kit they will be required to borrow a PE kit in order to take part in planned activities. For cultural reasons students are able to wear navy full length tracksuit bottoms which must be plain with no stripes or logos at the teacher’s discretion.
