Students wear our uniform with pride. It is smart but practical, and reflects all of our aspirations for our Academy. The mantra we believe is: "If you look smart, you are smart”.
To prevent uniform getting lost, please make sure that each item is named using an iron-on, stick-on or sewn-in label, or by using a permanent naming pen.
Harris Academy Peckham uniform can be purchased from APT Clothing Company 26A Rye Lane Peckham SE15 5BS.
Students are expected to be of smart and sensible appearance. Individual fashion statements such as extreme hair styles or colours, designer shirts, trainers and decorated footwear are not permitted.
Tram lines or other shaved shapes in the hair and ‘bar codes’ in eyebrows are not permitted. Extreme hairstyles are not allowed, this includes Mohican haircuts. Tinted or cosmetic contact lenses and decorative dental wear are not permitted. No bandannas, hoods, caps or hats at any time are allowed.
By requiring students to wear the Academy uniform, it is intended to develop their sense of loyalty to the community of which they are members, and to encourage them to take a pride in their appearance. Students are expected to wear full Academy uniform on the way to and from the Academy.
If students are not in full uniform they will not be able to attend lessons. They will work in the referral room, until the correct uniform is brought to them or they will be sent home to change, with parental permission. If a student persistently fails to wear uniform the normal Academy procedure for student support should be followed (see our Behaviour for Learning policy on our Student Welfare page).
No jewellery is allowed except for one wrist watch and one plain gold or silver ear stud in each ear, no bigger than 3mm in diameter. Nose studs and other forms of body piercing are not permitted. No accessories are to be worn around the neck or attached to clothing. Jewellery and other forbidden items will be confiscated and only returned at the end of term after the Academy celebration assembly or picked up by a parent or carer.
Large amounts of money and expensive personal effects should not be brought to the Academy. Harris Academy Peckham will not accept liability for any claim arising from theft, accidental loss or damage to personal effects, money, belongings or clothing whilst on the Academy premises. Money should be kept in purses or wallets. No other money pouches will be acceptable.
Personal stereos, mobile telephones, computer games etc MUST NOT be brought to the Academy. Should parents or guardians need to contact their child, we ask that they call the Academy reception where a message can be delivered to the child.
