Uniform

To fully cultivate a child into appreciating and respecting Islam, it is beneficial to encourage this through both mind and body. It is one thing to teach them about Islam, and another to physically emulate how a Muslim should behave, and dress is important for that. 

School uniforms provide a sense of belonging whilst ensuring equality amongst students. A smart appearance contributes positively to the students’ attitude to work and study, and significantly influences how the school is portrayed to the general public. Our School Uniform applies to all year groups in both Primary and Secondary. All students are expected to wear a school branded jumper/cardigan/blazer which is available from Wynsors.

Our Uniform Standards

To ensure uniform standards are upheld, we ask parents to: 

  • have a minimum of 2 school uniforms per child – so that if one becomes dirty or torn a replacement is always available
  • ensure your child is in their correct uniform, including correct footwear before they leave for school
  • always provide a note when you have to send your son or daughter to school with incorrect uniform items 
  • be prepared to bring in (on the day) your child’s correct clothing if incorrect items of clothing are worn
  • provide children with a pair of trainers that can be worn at break times whilst they play various ball games – this will help to preserve their school shoes from being torn and scuff marks

Ensuring adherence to uniform rules is a demonstration to the community of the academy’s confidence to set and maintain high standards. No tracksuit tops, hoodies or zip up tops will be allowed to be worn on school site.

Haircut Policy

Our Haircut Policy

The school does not permit children to have extreme haircuts or eyebrow shaving that could serve as a distraction to other children and are not in keeping with the Islamic ethos of the school.

Hairstyles must be sensible and appropriate for school; extreme haircuts or skin fades are not acceptable. Haircuts which involves the shaving of lines or symbols, extreme coloration or particularly noticeable variations in colour or length, excessive use of hair products and false hair will certainly be judged as extreme by the school. Short back and sides should be no shorter than a number 3 unless it is the same length all over.

Any sort of Eyebrow shaving or pattern cut into the eyebrow would be unacceptable.

If any student comes to school with an inappropriate hairstyle or eyebrow alteration, parents/guardians will be contacted to escort the student home. The student will not be allowed to return until the hairstyle has been rectified and is deemed appropriate by the school.
