Coats and mobile phones
I am writing to remind you of the Academies’ rules regarding coats, uniform and mobile phones. These rules have been in place since September but I have recently noticed that a number of students have not been adhering to our guidelines and I am therefore keen to ensure that they all understand these rules and the consequences that will be applied if they do not follow them.
All students will be reminded today that they should not wear coats inside the Academies’ building. As of Thursday, 27 November, any student who is wearing their coat inside the buildings will have the coat confiscated until the end of the day.
All students should be wearing full uniform. They must wear their blazer and tie, and trousers/skirts should be appropriate for school (no jeans or leggings). Students must wear appropriate shoes – trainers and UGG-style boots are not acceptable. If any student does not have full uniform, they will be secluded until they have all necessary items.
Finally, students will also be reminded of our mobile phone policy. Any student seen with a mobile phone as of Monday, 1 December will have their phone confiscated and it will not be returned until we have made contact with parents. If the student is caught with the phone on subsequent occasions, parents will have to come into the Academies to collect the phone.
I would like to reiterate that these are not new policies but my staff will be taking a strong line on these areas in the coming weeks and I hope that I can rely on your support to reinforce these expectations. Should you wish to discuss these matters, please do not hesitate to contact me.
