Newsletter – Information and Standards

Dear Parent/Carer

RE: Information and Standards

In order to ensure that we maintain our high standards at Thistley Hough Academy, we are introducing Standards Cards. This is a credit card sized card which will be carried by all students in their top blazer pocket. If a student’s uniform does not meet our high expectations

  • shirt untucked, blazer sleeves rolled up, they will be asked for their card, which the member of staff will If a student receives four signatures for infringements in a half term, they will be placed into an after school detention for 30 minutes on the same day. A text will be sent home to let parents/carers know that their son or daughter has received a detention.

 

We are also a no chewing gum school. Students who chew gum in school will be asked to dispose of it and also have their Standards Card signed.

 

Failure by students to carry their Standards Card will result in an automatic 30-minute detention. They will then be issued with a new card.

 

Please may I take this opportunity to remind you of the Thistley Hough uniform, which we expect to see students in, and the basic equipment we expect every student to have in school each day.
