PE Policy: Should, for any reason, a student be unable to participate in the lesson they should still change in to full kit as they will be expected to coach, observe and contribute verbally during the lesson.

Shoes

Plain black polishable shoes, no more that 1inch heel height. Shoes with distinctive fashion features such as buckles, logos and tags are not permitted as a normal part of the daywear; subtle black adornments are acceptable (see www.magnusacademy.co.uk for a guide to suitable shoes). Shoes with kitten or stiletto heels, boots and ballet-style shoes are also not allowed.

Jewellery

Students may wear a watch however due to health and safety issues and concerns relating to loss of valuable items, students are not allowed to wear jewellery, including earrings and piercings of any kind, during their time at the Academy.

Hairstyles

Hairstyles should be neat in a natural colour and not be extreme in style.  Where hair is cut short, this should not be extreme and preferably no shorter than a grade 2. As a general guide, examples of extreme hair styles might include hair that is dyed an artificial colour; any two-tone; colouring/bleaching for example the effect resulting in hair being ‘dip dyed’; excessive use of a hair product to encourage hair to stand up; hair that is shaved very short in some places but left longer on the top/in the middle, hair that is combed into any sort of Mohican style, hair that has any sort of pattern or parting shaved into it. Some fashion styles are proving problematic where hair is ‘side parted’ by shaving short on one side and combing longer strands of hair to the other side.  The principal reserves the right to assess whether a style is considered extreme or not. Parents should consult, in advance, if they are unsure as to the suitability of a change of style.  Caps of all kinds must not be worn in and around the academy.

Make-up

Y7 – 11 may not wear make-up, nail varnish that is not natural in colour or false nails.  If make-up is noticeable then students will be required to remove this using a make-up remover wipe. If nail varnish is not natural in colour students will be required to remove this using nail varnish remover.

Coats

These should be plain and dark in colour. They must not be worn around the academy during the school day. Denim and leather jackets are not allowed.
