Here at Bacon’s we are committed to the highest of standards for our students; our student’s appearance and being smartly dressed is an important part of this. In our experience the way students wear their uniform can affect their attitude to their studies. We feel that is necessary for our students to look smart when they travel back and forth to school and when in our local community.
A high standard of personal appearance is expected of all students. All students are expected to arrive wearing their full school uniform (blazer, white shirt, tie, trousers/kilt or summer dress, white or black socks) – there are no exceptions to this! If they are without any item of uniform, they will be sent home to get it.
We recognise that these items can be expensive and so the College PTA will be selling donated items of uniform at a cheaper rate three times a year. They will be in contact with all parents about this.
Having the correct equipment is essential for learning. Tutors will check students have the correct equipment regularly and contact parents where this is an issue.
Regular equipment checks will be made by Pastoral Managers, Achievement Leaders and SLT during lessons visits.
Every student is expected to provide the following basic items of equipment for every lesson:
Blue or black ball point pen (and a spare!)
|Coloured Pencils / felt tips||Pencil sharpener|
Tippex/ liquid paper is not allowed in school and must not be used in any school work.
Text books and specialised equipment will be issued on loan and students will be required to pay for any loss or damage to school property.
Students must have their planners at all times. A student is required to bring their Planner to every lesson and have it on their desk during the course of the lesson. Failure to do this means they are not prepared to learn.
Replacement planners can purchased for a cost of £5.00.
