We have high expectations of our learners in respect to dress code.  We expect them to dress smartly and take pride in the way they present themselves.  Our dress code centres around respect for oneself, other people and the world around you.  It is for this reason that we will not accept learners who do not make an effort to dress smartly, having your top button undone, your tie unfastened and your shirt untucked, shows a lack of respect for the serious learning ethos in which we believe at Honywood and will, therefore be consistently challenged here.

Within this framework of respect, our expectations for our dress code are as follows:

Boys

Trousers – Smart and Black. Denim, chinos and leggings are NOT ACCEPTABLE.

Shirt – White/Pale Blue with top button for wearing with a tie

Tie – (available from Anglia Sports & Schoolwear online shop)

Shoes – Smart black flat/low-heeled leather/leather upper shoes suitable for school. Shoes with a sports or logo branding are NOT ACCEPTABLE, this includes trainers/canvas type footwear.

Jumper – With school motif, Royal Blue for cohorts 7 and 8 and Black for Cohorts 9, 10 and 11 (available as above)

Coats – Weather proof, hard wearing

Bag – Suitable for carrying a range of text and exercise books and an iPad

Girls

Skirt – Black knee length (sold via Anglia School and Sports Wear) – Short, clingy skirts of Jersey fabric are NOT ACCEPTABLE

Trousers – Smart and Black – Denim and leggings are NOT ACCEPTABLE

Shirt – White/ Pale Blue with top button for wearing with a tie

Tie – (available from Anglia Sports & Schoolwear online shop)

Shoes – Smart black flat/low-heeled leather/leather upper shoes suitable for school. Shoes with a sports or logo branding are NOT ACCEPTABLE, this includes trainers/canvas type footwear.

Jumper – With school motif, Royal Blue for cohorts 7 and 8 and Black for Cohorts 9, 10 and 11 (available as above)

Coats – Weather proof, hard wearing

Bag – Suitable for carrying a range of text and exercise books and an iPad

Where learners choose to wear jewellery, this should be minimised. We accept that some learners will choose to have their ears pierced, however, the issue of body piercing, whether this be in the ear or elsewhere, raises a number of potential health concerns. We will not, therefore, accept any learner attending with piercings other than those in their ears. Where ears are pierced, once again for safety reasons, small stud earrings must be worn.

If learners or parents/carers are unsure as to the suitability of clothing/footwear please contact the learner’s Learning Group Leader in the first instance who will be happy to advise on the suitability of the clothing/footwear.  We do not want parents/carers to be in a difficult position, having purchased clothing/footwear which does not meet the expectations of our dress code.  On the rare occasion that a learner may not be able to adhere to the dress code due to unforeseen circumstances, parents/carers need to send them in with a note and/or email their Learning Group Leader.  We would expect that this would be rectified as soon as possible and within the maximum time frame of one week, (following Monday) allowing families adequate time to resolve the particular issue.

PE KIT

All learners must have the following kit:

T-shirts, rugby shirts, sweatshirts, shorts, leggings and blue socks can be purchased via the link to Anglia Sports and School wear.    Click here to purchase from the website

In cold weather learners may wear base layers under their tops in a navy blue colour.  In wet weather, a towel maybe required for learners to shower.  We would strongly recommend that all learners wishing to participate in rugby and/or football are equipped with shin pads and a gum shield.  Should your child need to be excused PE for medical reasons then please provide a letter explaining the problem.  Learners will be expected to bring their kit so that they can still participate in the learning session as a coach or official where fitness allows.

*   Please note that a rugby shirt or sweatshirt can be purchased.  However, due to the zip, the sweatshirt will not be permitted in rugby.

Learners studying GCSE PE and Dance are able to purchase an Adidas Short Sleeve Jersey displaying the School Badge and have their surname printed on the back.  Please click the link below to be directed to the website for ordering.
