Students are permitted to wear a coat to school and are expected to remove it once in the building.

Expectation

Students will always be in full uniform when on the academy site. If a student does not have full uniform with them and it can't be corrected that day, they will remain in the inclusion unit until this is rectified. A phone call home will be made by the inclusion team to try and resolve the uniform issue with parent/carer support.

Footwear

Students are expected to be in plain, black leather look, polishable shoes, worn with plain black socks. Shoes should not have a heel higher than one inch. Shoes should not be canvas, patterned or trainer type. 

Hair

Hair colour should be a single, natural hair colour. If a student attends school with unnatural hair colour, parents will be contacted to reach a resolution and the student will remain in the inclusion unit until resolved. Hair cuts should not be distracting and will be dealt with on a case by case basis. 

Make-up

If a student wears makeup to school this should be minimal and subtle. We will make judgement on this and if asked to remove makeup, students will be given an immediate opportunity to rectify it. Should a member of staff ask for make up to be removed, they will issue a 20 minute lunch time detention which will be issued for the same day or the next school day if given after lunch. 

Jewellery

Students can wear one small stud earring per ear and a watch (not a smart watch). If any other jewellery is seen, students will be asked to remove the jewellery and a 20 minute lunch time detention will be issued for the same day or the next school day if given after lunch. Clear plastic retainers are allowed. 

Hoodies and non-uniform attire

Students should be wearing the correct uniform as soon as they enter the school gate. Coats should be removed before entering the school building. If a student is seen wearing any non-uniform attire, staff will confiscate the item, issue the student with a 20 minute lunch time detention for the same day or the next school day if given after lunch. A phone call will be made home for the parent/carer to pick the item up at the end of the school day. We will only return the item upon collection by the student’s parent/carer. 

False nails

Students will wear their own natural nails. Clear nail polish may be worn. If a student attends school with false nails, they will be asked to remove the false nails and a 20 minute lunch time detention for the same day or the next school day if given after lunch. 

Mobile phones, speakers, headphones/earphones  

Safeguarding your child is of paramount importance to us at Wayland Academy. Although our WiFi network is secure, students can still access their own 3/4G signal anywhere therefore we cannot guarantee their safety or the safety of other students. Mobile phones, speakers and headphones/earphones are not required in school at any time. If mobile phones, speakers and headphones/earphones are seen, staff will confiscate the item, the student will be issued with a 20 minute lunch time detention for the same day or the next school day if given after lunch. Parents/carers will be notified of the confiscation and a time/day will be arranged with them to pick up the item. The item/s will only be returned to the parent or carer of the student in question.

Any behaviour that is deemed to be inappropriate may be sanctioned with time spent in the inclusion unit. If a student is in the inclusion unit for the day, they will have a separate break and lunchtime to the rest of the school, and they are not permitted to leave the inclusion unit for any reason or without the permission of the inclusion team.
