Hair and jewellery
We like children to look smart for school so we do not allow shaved patterns, extreme styles e.g. Mohicans or dyed hair in either eyebrows or hair during term time. Long hair (shoulder length or below) should be tied back for safety and hygiene reasons. Hair should be tied up in a bobble. Blue or blue and white checked scrunchies may also be worn. Hair bands, if worn, should be discreet and of standard size.
For reasons of safety and security, the wearing of jewellery, such as rings and necklaces, are not allowed.
We prefer it if children do not wear ear-rings for school. However, if ear-rings are worn, they should be small studs for safety reasons and only one stud in each ear. There are times when ear-rings are a danger to the child and ear-rings are not permitted during swimming, games and P.E. activities. Other piercings are not permitted.
Children who wear ear-rings in school are expected to both remove and replace them themselves before and after the activity, or on activity days, to come to school without ear-rings. For health and safety reasons, teachers are not permitted to remove pierced ear-rings for children. If you are considering having your child’s ears pierced, then please wait for the beginning of the long summer holiday. We also respectfully request that children do not wear make-up or nail varnish to school.
P.E Games, Swimming
If your child is not fit to participate in P.E., Games or Swimming, a note to this effect must be sent to the class teacher or you must speak to the teacher to explain why.
