Music

We strongly advise that students use a hard case to transport their instrument to and from the academy to offer the best possible protection for the instrument. The case must be clearly labelled with the student’s name. Students are responsible for ensuring their instrument is stored safely. The Academy will not be responsible for damage caused due to improper storage or unsuitable protection.

Tights

Tights must be plain black, opaque (not patterned) and a minimum of 40 denier. Nothing else should be worn on top or under the tights such as additional socks.

Nail Polish

Nail polish and any type of false nails (including clear gels, acrylics, extensions, Shellac etc) are not allowed.

Jewellery and Makeup

No jewellery is allowed except a wrist watch and a Medic Alert necklace or bracelet. Smart watches are not allowed in the Academy. If any student is thinking about having their ears pierced, or any other piercing, this should be done at the start of the summer holiday, as no student will be allowed to wear earrings or any other jewellery at any time.

Noticeable make-up is not allowed. Any make-up must be discreet. The decision as to what qualifies as discreet rests with the Principal and Executive Principal of the individual Academy. False eyelashes are not to be worn. Henna is not allowed.

Hair

Hairstyles and colour should be sensible.

Please check with your child’s Learning Manager before considering any dramatic changes to style or colour. No offensive patterns should be shaved into hairstyles. No scarves or bandanas are allowed (unless for religious reasons). Hair accessories can only be worn in the hair and must be black or Academy purple; hair bobbles cannot be worn on the wrist.

Other Equipment

Key Stage 4 students studying Food Technology will require a cotton apron. The apron should be non- plastic and non-offensive, and can be purchased from high street stores.

All students will need a pen, pencil, ruler and rubber. A scientific calculator; we recommend Casio FX-85, a pair of compasses, a protractor and a dictionary would also be useful.

Year 6 Uniform Collection Dates

Year 6 Uniform Collection dates and times are:

We will provide a full uniform for all Year 7 students. Our uniform supplier, Trutex, will attend each of our primary feeder schools during June/July, to measure Year 6 students. If your child attends a non-feeder school outside of the Worksop area, you will receive an order form and covering letter by post. Please follow the instructions carefully and return your order form by the date specified in the letter.

Uniform packs can be collected from Outwood Academy Portland; details of which can be found above, when you can also exchange uniform which does not fit and place orders for any further items you may wish to purchase. However, we recommend that you order extra uniform at the beginning of the summer holidays, to ensure arrival before your child starts at the academy in September. Additionally, each student will require a pair of plain black shoes, along with some non-marking trainers for PE.
