Uniform

We pride ourselves on high standards of dress in school and ask for the co-operation of students and parents in maintaining these. A high standard of dress impacts on the working ethos of the school and how the wider community views our students. It is the expectation of this school that students attend dressed smartly, safely and that appropriately.  Students wear the correct items of uniform in the correct manner.  The Principal’s decision on the way all items of clothing should be worn is final.

We are always looking at ways to improve how we do things at Weavers Academy. Students wear their uniform with pride and correctly and arrive at school on time and equipped to learn.  We are looking to further improve the Uniform at Weavers Academy. 

Below is the uniform check list. We are raising expectations by ensuring everyone follows the uniform expectations.  We have shared this information through the school website and pupil planner and also by newsletters on; May 2017, March 2017, February 2017. I have also included photographs of students who meet the uniform standard.  Please do check these so you can see especially what trousers, skirts and shoes are allowed.

Areas we are focusing on:

Tightly fitting trousers are not appropriate for school; please follow the guidance on trousers samples of which are available on the website as above. Casual shoes or trainers which have sports logos: Nike ticks, adidas stripes, Kappa figures etc. are not allowed.                                                                                               

 

Students not in the correct uniform

To ensure the high expectations on uniform are kept by all, students who disregard the standards will be isolated from other students until they comply with the regulations. If students are not in the correct uniform the school will provide the correct items whenever possible.

 

Special Consideration

Parents can apply in writing to the School governing body if they wish their child to wear different items for religious, cultural or health reasons.

 

Financial Support

In cases of financial hardship parents can apply in writing to the Principal/Governors for financial support. Such cases will be treated with due sensitivity and in confidence.

 

A few changes:

  • Unfortunately nail extensions have prevented students from effectively participating in activities and also pose a safety risk – therefore we are adding them to our not to be worn list.  Varnish if worn should only be clear.
  • We have increased the expectation for students to be well equipped with two pencils and two pens – pupil office sell these for 5p.  We have removed the need for a compass – the maths department will provide this if required in lessons.
  • The rolling up blazer sleeves is not in line with how the uniform should be worn.

 

 

Hair

  • All hair must be natural. No shaved patterns.  Hairstyles should not be extreme. Parents should consult, in advance, with the Raising standard leader if they are unsure as to the suitability of a change of style. The school decides what is 'extreme'.
  • Long hair to be tied back in PE, DT and science. 
  • Hair products should be avoided due to safety issued around flames in science, DT etc.
  • Students will be given 24 hours to change inappropriately coloured hair.
  • Hair extensions must be the wearer’s hair colour

  • Students may wear a watch but no other jewellery is permitted due to health and safety issues and liability in case of loss. Therefore, if students wish to have any part of their body pierced they must arrange this at the beginning of the summer holidays so that the wound has sufficient time to heal. Plasters may not be worn to cover body jewellery. If students disregard this they will be isolated from other students until they comply with the regulation.
