Ashmole
Academy

School Uniform

Introduction

At Ashmole Academy we are committed to the principle that all students should wear formal school uniform. There are important reasons for this:

a. Uniform creates a sense of community cohesion
b. Wearing uniform allows identification in the local community
c. Uniform creates a sense of formality and professionalism

We have made every effort to make our uniform both attractive and affordable.  Having chosen to send your child to a school that has high standards of uniform, we ask that parents/carers take the responsibility for ensuring that their sons/daughters are in full correct uniform each school day.

Many items of the school uniform can be purchased through many retailers; however, the main suppliers of the Ashmole branded uniform are:

Uniform 4 Kids and ORC Sports.

IF PARENTS/CARERS HAVE ANY DOUBTS ABOUT UNIFORM, THEY SHOULD CHECK WITH THE SCHOOL BEFORE BUYING

The school will take immediate action against students not conforming to these rules.  If this is not possible, due to exceptional circumstances, parents/carers should contact the school immediately in writing.  Variations in uniform for medical reasons will need to be supported by a doctor’s note.

Full school uniform must be worn at all times during the day, and to and from school.  The only exception to this is, when playing sports at break and lunchtimes, trainers may be worn.

Any request to outwardly manifest a religious/cultural observance which is not expressly covered by this policy should be made to the Head Teacher.  Any such request will be carefully considered taking into account the school’s obligations under the Equality Act 2010.

All aspects of uniform can be obtained from Uniform 4 Kids or ORC Sports.

 

The Ashmole Uniform can be found displayed online at the school website at www.ashmoleacademy.org.

 

 

POST 16 DRESS CODE

Post 16 students are student leaders in a school community.  Their dress and appearance must therefore be appropriate to support and encourage the ethos of the school and the uniform and appearance policies in operation in Years 7 to 11.

  1. Post 16 students are not required to wear uniform but must dress appropriately for school in a casual but smart manner.  They should remember that:
    1. Tracksuits are banned.
    2. Wearing hats indoors is forbidden.
    3. Hooded clothing may only be worn with the hood up in extreme weather conditions and not in the building.
    4. Wearing football shirts or scarves is not allowed.
    5. Inappropriate slogans must not be worn on clothing.
    6. Jeans and trousers are to be smart and without rips or holes.
    7. Outdoor coats must be removed when in the buildings.
    8. Shorts are not appropriate for school.
    9. Skirts and tops for girls should be of an appropriate style and length.

 

  1. Appearance is required to be smart and in line with the main school Years 7 to 11.  Specifically:
  • Hair must be kept clean, neat and tidy in line with our high standards of uniform. Cult or eccentric styles are not permitted.  Any colouring must be of a natural shade and of a single shade. Boy’s hair must not be shorter than a Number 2.
  • To create a clear distinction between staff and students boys should be clean shaven.  Boys who choose for religious reasons to grow a beard may do so if granted permission by the Head Teacher providing that the growth is of stubble length.
  • Body piercings and tattoos are not acceptable.  Apart from the ears, no other visible body piercing is allowed, except one small discrete nose stud.
  • Headscarves that cover the hair for religious reasons are permitted. Following consultation and for reasons of health and safety and teaching and learning interaction face veils are not permitted.

 

Any request to outwardly manifest a religious/cultural observance which is not expressly covered by this policy should be made to the Head Teacher.  Any such request will be carefully considered taking into account the school’s obligations under the Equality Act 2010.
