Uniform Supplier

Our school uniform supplier is Macron and items can be purchased from the Macron Store, Bury (Unit 1A, Off Bright Street, Bury, BL9 6AQ) or via the Macron online shop for Hazel Wood High School: www.macronsports.co.uk/hazelwood.

Uniform items purchased from Macron should not be altered in any way. 

Mobile Phones and Audio Equipment

Pupils are allowed to bring mobile phones to school for emergency use only. Phones should be switched off and should remain in a safe place such as an inside blazer pocket. If a pupil feels that they need to use their phone during the school day, they must see their Form Tutor or Pastoral Year Leader to ask for permission.

If a pupil is found to be using their phone without permission, it will be confiscated. The first time this happens, the pupil may be allowed to collect their phone at the end of the school day. If a pupil continues to use their phone without permission, the phone may be confiscated, and Parents/Carers asked to come and collect it. The pupil may then be asked to deposit their phone with their Form Tutor or Pastoral Year Leader each morning for a fixed period until they can be trusted not to attempt to use it.

External speakers and earphones are not allowed in school and if seen will be confiscated.
