Dress Code Summer Term 2013
The Bucksburn Academy Dress Code has been in place since August 2010. This has been a really positive and successful change and both parents and visitors to the school consistently comment on the high level of uptake of the Dress Code amongst pupils.
This is something we as a school community wish to protect. Over the last months, the severe weather has meant that pupils arrive in school in jackets and zipped jumpers. At times, these jackets and jumpers have not been removed during the course of the school day, reducing the effect of the Dress Code as a means of identifying pupils as belonging to Bucksburn Academy.
After the Easter Holidays, the warmer weather will bring an opportunity for a return to good Dress Code habits. We will be asking pupils to remove all non-dress code outer wear once they have entered the school and these will remain in lockers or bags until the end of the school day. We would be most grateful if parents could continue to support the Bucksburn Academy Dress Code (http://www.bucksburnacademy.org.uk/parents/dress-code), with the following being highlights:-
A final note is that, when on study leave, Senior Phase pupils should expect to wear Dress Code at any time when they are in school (for exams or scheduled study).
Thankyou for your continued support of the Bucksburn Academy Dress Code.
Dress Code Update 2013
DRESS CODE UPDATE
New S4 Dress Code
On the first induction day for S4, Monday 3rd June, new S4 pupils will be presented with their Senior Phase Tie (costs to be met by the school). The expectation from this point on (dress code is required for Tuesday 4th June induction and thereafter), is that S4 pupils will wear the school tie with either a black or white shirt. As in previous years, the month of June will be a 'settling in period', where shirts are sourced and purchased.
Full details relating to the Dress Code can be seen in the parent section of our website, www.bucksburnacademy.org.uk.
