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.
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).
No jewellery except for one wrist watch. Nose studs and other forms of body piercing are not permitted. No accessories are to be worn around the neck or attached to clothing.
