Other Uniform Information

 

Piercings

We are aware that body piercing is becoming increasingly fashionable and would like to take this opportunity to update the school policy concerning jewellery.

Ideally, jewellery should not be worn in school (a watch only may be worn – no rings, necklaces or bracelets). If your child has pierced ears, then only small, plain ‘studs’ should be worn.  Children may only wear one stud in each ear.  Studs worn in any other body part – including noses, eyebrows, tongues and navels – are not permitted.

Jewellery should not be worn during P.E. and games lessons.  To avoid any problems caused by ‘freshly pierced ears’ and the difficulty of removing studs during the healing period, we would recommend that piercings should take place at the beginning of the summer holiday.

If your child is not able to remove their own studs, then these must not be worn for school on P.E./games days.

Hair

Could we ask that all hair which touches the shoulders is kept off the face and tied back in some way, either with an Alice band, head band or bobble? Hair should also be of one colour, preferably the child’s natural colour and styling kept to a minimum. Please keep things simple.

Water Bottles

Children may only use a school water bottle throughout the day and these are available from the school office at £2.50 each.
