Sir Henry Floyd is part of Insignis Academy Trust, working with other schools to create a significant enhancement to the education of students in and around Aylesbury.

Parents

Uniform - Years 7 -11

The Governors have established three principles that will underpin our detailed uniform/dress code policy:

  1. A policy on uniform/dress code identity within the school.
  2. The security and safety of the school population.
  3. Ensuring that no apparel of any description will be allowed which in the opinion of the Headteacher and Governors would impede the need for teachers and students to relate well together and communicate effectively. 

Please note:

  • Uniform for Years 7-11 is of the standard school type - Fashion items are not acceptable.
  • Trousers must be of a standard, plain school type. These should not have ‘jeans’ styling, external pockets, low cut waists, tapered or wide leg styles, or turn-ups etc.Trousers containing a high percentage of elastane lycra in the fabric content should be avoided.A plain black belt may be worn.
  • Skirts must be purchased from the school’s nominated supplier, Bucks Schoolwear Plus, and are of a plain, pleated design.

This ensures that issues arising from students wearing skirts that are too short, with  splits or other embellishments, or containing a high percentage of elastane lycra in the fabric content are avoided. Skirts should be of a length that reaches mid-thigh of the student or longer.  They must not be shorter nor rolled up to appear shorter.  The waistband must be worn as intended.

  • Students wear a pre-formed tie in Year 7 to Year 11, with buttons of shirts fastened.
  • Head coverings worn for religious reasons, e.g. hijab, should be plain and either white or black in colour, without embellishment/jewelling.
  • For safety reasons shoes must not have a heel higher than 2.5 cms/1 inch and may not be of platform style or resemble trainers in their styling.
  • The Headteacher will make a decision regarding a date during the summer term, dependent on weather conditions, after which blazers will not have to be worn.
  • If a student is found not adhering to the dress-code they will initially be placed on a uniform report, requiring them to have their clothing checked each morning and receive a signature of approval by the relevant member of staff. Failure to adhere to the dress code subsequent to this will result in a student being sent home and/or internally excluded for the remainder of the day. 

Please note:

No apparel of any description will be allowed which in the opinion of the Headteacher and Governors would impede the need for teachers and students to relate well together and communicate effectively.

If parents/carers wish an exception to the uniform, appearance and possessions guidelines to be made for their child they should state their case in writing, in advance, to the Headteacher.

Persistent breaches of the dress code will result in students being sent home and/or excluded.
