Weston Favell Academy

Uniform

We have strict guidelines on uniform and all secondary pupils are expected to wear the full Academy uniform.

Parents are strongly advised to supervise the purchase of all clothing to be worn on the Academy site.  The Principal's decision about uniform issues is binding and final.

The wearing of our distinctive uniform gives pupils a sense of ‘belonging', helps foster pride in the Academy and stops pupils coming to school in inappropriate clothing or footwear.

Pupils are always expected to wear Academy uniform.  

Jewellery should not be visible, except for:

·         one pair of studs worn in the lobes of the ear

·         one clear retainer for a facial piercing.

Hair colouring should be natural.

Pupils are not permitted to have nail extensions.

Pupils must wear their student card with them at all times as this is considered part of their uniform/essential equipment.

Outdoor coats must be removed by pupils when they are sat down e.g. in lessons and in the restaurant at break
