Academy Uniform

IF YOU ARE THE PARENT OF A CHILD WHO WILL BE JOINING THE ACADEMY IN SEPTEMBER 2018, PLEASE DO NOT PLACE ANY UNIFORM ORDERS UNTIL YOU HAVE RECEIVED YOUR INDUCTION PACK WHICH WILL BE SENT OUT AT THE END OF APRIL.

Uniform

 

The expectation is that students wear their uniform correctly and with pride when travelling to and from the Academy.

 

On Educational Visits, if non-uniform is permitted, students should wear smart trousers or skirts and appropriate tops, shirts or blouses with no offensive logos. It should be remembered that on such excursions the students are representing the Academy and their appearance should reflect that.

 

The Academy discourages students from wearing high-value items of clothing/jewellery or bringing expensive technology onto site. Should they choose to do this, they do so at their own risk. 

Uniform – Compulsory Items

Blazer

Navy blue with Academy badge*

Skirt

Belvoir Academy kilt/skirt (this should be purchased long enough to allow for growth; those reaching 10cm above the knee will be deemed too short).

Trousers

Plain black (straight, classic style – no stretch fabrics, turn ups or flairs). No denim. Trousers should not be cropped (there should be no gap between the bottom of the trouser and the shoe).

Tie

Priory Belvoir tie (worn so that there is no gap between the top of the trousers/skirt and the bottom of the tie).

Earrings must be studs (only one stud per ear).

In some practical subjects, e.g. PE, earrings will need to be removed. Therefore, students must ensure they have their ears pierced with sufficient time for the wounds to heal so that earrings can be taken out. Plasters may not be worn to cover earrings.

Jewellery

Students may wear a watch. No jewellery is to be worn in the eyebrows, nose, tongue or any other body piercing.

If smart watches are worn during the Academy day then they should be disconnected from mobile phones. Smart watches are not permitted to be worn in examinations.

Hair styles

Hair should be smart and safe for a working environment. Any long hair may be required to be tied back at a member of staff’s discretion. Extreme hairstyles (as decided by the Academy) are not permitted: e.g. no tram lines/edges/steps.

Hair colour must be natural and one shade throughout.

Muslim Hijab

If worn it must be navy blue.

Make-up

Key Stage 3 students (Year 7-9) are not allowed to wear make-up except in exceptional circumstances where light foundation will be permitted to disguise skin complaints. Key Stage 4 students are allowed to wear discrete make-up. The Academy will be the arbiter of the term ‘extreme’.

UNIFORM UPDATE                                                                                                                                                             July 2018

This  is to confirm that there has been a minor change to the academy uniform. 

Since joining the Priory Federation of Academies Trust on 1ST October 2017, the academy changed its name to The Priory Belvoir Academy and we have created a rebranded version of the school logo to reflect this. 

An additional  uniform supplier, Uniform Direct have been commissioned to stock items with the new Priory Belvoir Academy logo from 2nd July 2018.  It is our intention to allow the new logo to be phased in so parents do not need to change the uniform until it is necessary. 

Uniform is a key aspect of The Priory Belvoir Academy, allowing us to maintain the high standards that have helped make us such a successful academy and your support in this is essential.

 

Uniform Direct www.uniform-direct.com and choose 'find your school', choose 'secondary school' and search Priory Belvoir.

Uniform Direct are the only supplier to stock our rebranded academy uniform items.
