Student Expectations

The standards set out in these guidelines aim to ensure that students are clearly identified as members of Quarrydale Academy.

It is our intention that, through the Academy dress code, students will be seen as good ambassadors by presenting in a smart Quarrydale school uniform when they are in the Academy, the local community and elsewhere.

The formal dress code is associated with the high standards of work and behaviour we expect from each child. It is important that all staff reinforce these expectations and remind students regularly of the reasons for wearing a uniform. During inclement weather the wearing of boots with trousers tucked in is acceptable to avoid trouser bottoms from getting wet.

All students are expected to be in full uniform each day. Students will be removed from lessons if they are not wearing the correct uniform or their hairstyle, makeup or jewellery does not meet with Academy’s expectations. Parents and/or students should check with the school before purchasing items or colouring/styling hair if they are unsure of whether the item/hairstyle/hair colour will meet with school expectations.
