Uniform Policy

Harton Academy Uniform

School uniform details  can be found here.

All main school students are expected to wear school uniform.
We ask students to attend school looking smart and business like. We feel that this will help prepare them for life after school, whether that be work or further education. We feel that our uniform requirements are based on sound common sense ideas and we ask for the full support of parents in ensuring that they are met.

All students are expected to take pride in their school uniform and general appearance. Parents will be aware that the school introduced a new uniform in September 2018. This is in line with many schools locally and nationally and will ensure that Harton Academy students are proud to be dressed in a uniform that is both practical
and attractive.

We have chosen a single supplier, Michael Sehgal & Sons Ltd, for the main items of uniform which are : Blazer, tie, skirt.

PURCHASE OPTIONS

Uniform can be purchased online from the company website: www.michaelsehgal.co.uk and there is a link to the home page on the Harton Academy website. Purchases can be made using PC, tablet or phone and you can select from delivery to home or collection from the store in Newcastle.

You can also buy uniform direct from the Uniform Shop at: Michael Sehgal & Sons Ltd 28/40 Scotswood, Road Newcastle upon Tyne NE4 7JB.

There is also an optional jumper for all students. The rest of the uniform, i.e. Shirt, Trousers, Shoes and dark coloured outdoor coat if worn, can be purchased from any supplier. Please note that trousers should be formal dress trousers. Jeans, leggings or jeggings are not appropriate.

OTHER ITEMS OF UNIFORM

OUTDOOR COATS

The student outdoor coat should be a plain, dark coat that opens down the front, so that the uniform can be seen. The school colours regarding outdoor coats are black/dark blue. In the interests of promoting a smart and business like appearance, we ask parents to ensure that brightly coloured coats, hoodies and tracksuits are not worn to school. If a child does arrive at school wearing an inappropriate coat/top they will be asked to remove it as they enter the building.

FOOTWEAR

School footwear for both boys and girls should be plain, flat, black leather shoes/ankle shoes with minimal decoration. Training shoes should not be worn to school.

TROUSERS

School trousers for both boys and girls should be traditional formal black dress trousers. Denim, leggings or skin tight trousers that resemble jeans should not be worn to school. School is aware that some shops are now advertising and selling ‘school uniform’ trousers that do not match our definition of formal dress trousers. We ask that parents check this carefully before purchase.

ACCESSORIES

JEWELLERY

We operate a ‘no jewellery policy’ at Harton. For obvious reasons of safety and risk of personal loss, jewellery (other than a watch) should not be worn in school. Parents should note that students wearing jewellery may have it confiscated.

Confiscated jewellery will only be returned at a time agreed by the member of staff or the student’s Head of Year. The school cannot accept responsibility for items of jewellery which are lost or damaged.

NB – Any kind of body piercing including nose, tongue and eye-brow studs is not appropriate for school. Any child wearing such apparel to school will not be allowed to circulate around the school. Parents will be contacted.

MAKE UP

Excessive make-up should not be worn. Senior female staff will determine ‘excessive’. Any make up worn should be subtle and of natural colours.

HAIR

Extravagant hair styles designed to make fashion statements are not allowed in school, – i.e. Mohican style, V cuts, shaved head, extremely long hair extension, very bright or unnatural colours, etc. Any student attending school with such a hair style will not be allowed to circulate around the school.

PERSONAL PROPERTY

In a school the size of Harton, dealing with lost property can be a major issue. We ask parents to ensure that all personal property is marked with the name of the student. We do not operate a ‘lost property room’. In the event of student personal property being found in classrooms, the property will be left in the classroom for a reasonable time so that the student can trace it. After that, we will try to re-locate the property but it will eventually be passed to a local charity. Student property
found in the PE area will be kept by the PE staff for a reasonable time and then passed to charity. For obvious reasons, items of high monetary or sentimental value should not be brought to school. Students do so at their own risk. The school cannot be responsible for loss or damage.
