Students from Harris Academy Beckenham will be in smart uniform and well equipped to learn.
Students are expected to be of smart and sensible appearance. Individual fashion statements such as extreme hair styles or colours, designer shirts, trainers and decorated footwear are not permitted. Tram lines or other shaved shapes in the hair and ‘bar codes’ in eyebrows are not permitted. Extreme hairstyles are not allowed, this includes Mohican haircuts. Tinted or cosmetic contact lenses and decorative dental wear are not permitted. No bandannas, hoods, caps or hats at any time.
By requiring students to wear the Academy uniform, it is intended to develop their sense of loyalty to the community of which they are members, and to encourage them to take a pride in their appearance. Students are expected to wear full Academy uniform on the way to and from the Academy. All items of uniform should be clearly marked or labelled.
If students are not in full uniform they will not be able to attend lessons. They will work in the referral room, until the correct uniform is brought to them or they will be sent home to change, with parental permission. If a student persistently fails to wear uniform the normal Academy procedure for student support should be followed (see Student Discipline Policy Document).

We are pleased to tell you that we have started to stock donated uniform items. At the moment we have limited stock but we hope, with your support, that stock will increase over time and grow into a well-used resource for families. Parents/carers are welcome to drop off unwanted uniform items at any time to reception. (Washed first!).
The Uniform Shop will be open by appointment only by emailing Mrs Miles in the main office on S.email@example.com
We hope you are able to take advantage of the opportunity to obtain uniform items but it’s success does rely on donations from parents/carers so your support is very much part of its potential success.
