The Academy Uniform
As you are aware from September 2013 we joined the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust Group of Academies and are now known as the Skegby Junior Academy. As part of the Trust ethos there will be a high expectation on appearance to develop a sense of pride and respect on the part of all Academies within the group.
The Skegby Junior Academy has strict guidelines on uniform which apply to all years. Pupils are expected to wear the Academy uniform when travelling to and from the Academy, at all Academy functions and on visits by parties or sports teams.
We will not allow tattoos, make-up, jewellery, earrings, nail varnish, dyed hair or hair extensions. Excessive hair styles are strongly discouraged and decisions about the suitability of an individual style are the responsibility of the Principal, whose decision will be final. ‘Cuts’ of any shape or design are not allowed, nor are multiple hair colours. Any pupil with long hair must have it tied back at all times whilst at the Academy. All modest hair accessories should be in the Academy colours.
Pupils are expected to abide by the new rules in order to maintain pride and respect for their appearance and our Academy.
