Uniform & Equipment

At Manor Community Academy we are proud of our school and this is reflected in our uniform.

We believe that compulsory uniform ensures that students (and their parents) do not feel under pressure to compete regarding appearance. At Manor all of the students conform to our uniform code and students’ individuality is expressed through their work and not through their appearance.

Full uniform is also essential during PE lessons where the wearing of replica football tops and designer kit is not allowed.

Jewellery is not permitted at Manor and body piercing is forbidden. Jewellery will be confiscated and placed in a secure place until parents can collect it. Body piercing (e.g. facial studs, tongue studs) is not allowed and students will be expected to remove any item of this type of jewellery. In certain circumstances, students who refuse to comply with this request will be sent home.

Students are not allowed extreme hairstyles; this includes shaved styles, patterns shaved into the hair, Mohican style cuts and extreme hair colours. Extreme hair colours are any bright colours which cannot be considered to be a natural hair colour.

With the exception of watches, students are discouraged from bringing valuables onto the premises and the Academy will not be held responsible when valuable possessions are stolen or lost unless they have been given to a member of staff for safe keeping. Confiscated items will be kept in a secure place until they have been returned to parents.

Mobile phones/ smartwatches and other electronic technology must be switched off at the academy gate, kept out of view and remain switched off until students exit the academy gate at the end of the day. If a child is seen with any of the items above in the academy, they will be confiscated, placed in the safe, and will only be returned to a parent/carer.

Noticeable make-up is not allowed. Any make-up must be discreet. The decision as what qualifies as discreet rests with the Principal and Executive Principal of the Academy.
