Labelling

Parents are asked to ensure that all items of clothing and personal possessions are marked, clearly, with the child's name.  Iron and sew-in labels are available from various suppliers.  Please check labels regularly if written in to ensure the names have not faded.

Hair, Jewellery and Make-up

For many reasons, including safety, we do not allow children to wear jewellery, including necklaces, rings or bracelets unless for medical purposes e.g. Medic Alert. The exceptions to this rule are ear-ring studs in pierced ears.

Children are required to remove any items during P.E. lessons or to cover them with micropore tape (supplied by parents) to prevent them from causing injury.

A basic watch may be worn. Smart watches or Fitbits are only allowed if the ability to access the internet and messaging services is disabled/switched off.  Very occasionally silicon wristbands, as part of a school charity activity, may be worn.

Please note: Teachers are not permitted to remove earrings.

Make up, including nail varnish and artificial nails should not be worn to school.

Tattoos, temporary or otherwise, are not permitted.

Children with long hair, below shoulder length or over a child’s face must keep this tied back during the school day and especially during PE lessons.  Please ensure that your child has appropriate elasticated bands for this purpose.

Other hair accessories such as alice bands, bows, hair clips and scrunchies should be in keeping with school uniform colours – green, brown or black - and should not have large flowers or other decoration attached.  These may need to be removed during PE sessions.  

Hair should be of natural colour and hairstyles should be practical.  Extreme hairstyles are not appropriate for school. The use of styling products should be kept to a minimum and children should not have decorative patterns cut into their hair or have hair coloured or dyed.
