Dress Code

Sixth form students must be smartly dressed at all times, as they would be if working in a smart professional environment.  Our Sixth Form students are role models for the rest of Harris Federation and as such need to be smartly presented at all times.  Identity cards with lanyards must be visible at all times.

Jackets may be removed in warm conditions. Scarves and coats may be worn outside the buildings but must be removed once inside.

Tattoos should not be visible. Visible body piercing is restricted to the ears and/or one small nose stud only. Bars, scaffolds and stretchers are not permitted.

Students will be sent home if they do not conform to the dress code. Parents/carers will be contacted on the first occasion a student is required to be sent home in relation to a dress code violation. In the event of any subsequent digression from the dress code, the student will be issued with a behaviour point and sent home to change, but no contact will be made with the parent/carer.

Transgender and non-binary students may dress consistently in accordance with their gender presentation.

It is beyond the scope of the policy to provide guidance on every eventuality. If students fail to comply with these guidelines they will be dealt with in line with the Federation discipline structure.
