Other items

We do not allow pupils to wear jewellery other than small studs and a watch. Make-up and nail polish are not permitted at Stradbroke Primary Academy. We also require all parents to ensure their children are warm throughout the winter months, ensuring they have adequate coats, gloves, and hats where necessary.

Procedures for non-compliance

We want to support parents and pupils with the uniform. However and to remove any absence of doubt, if a pupil attends Stradbroke Primary Academy with incorrect uniform they will be dealt with in the following three steps:

  1. A verbal warning will be given to the pupil and they will be asked to remove the item (if jewellery or make-up). If the incorrect uniform (e.g. trousers, shirt, shoes) is evident, then a verbal warning will also be issued and parents immediately notified of the warning.
  2. If a second incident occurs of incorrect uniform or appearance, the school will inform parents immediately and the pupil will be asked to go home to rectify the issue. Page 7 of the DfE guidance states that teachers can discipline pupils for breaching the school’s rules on appearance or uniform. The guidance also states that a headteacher may ask a pupil to go home to rectify the breach of school rules or appearance in uniform. As the DfE guidance states, this ‘sending home to rectify’ will initially constitute an authorised absence. Stradbroke Primary Academy will grant this for a maximum of two days, but further breaches will result in unauthorised absence.
  3. Further breaches in uniform or appearance will result in sanctions in line with Stradbroke Primary Academy behaviour policy as these will constitute not following school rules.
