Jewellery

With both Health & Safety and Security in mind, we prefer children not to wear jewellery to school. However, should you wish, children are permitted to wear a watch and simple, small stud earrings.

Children arriving in school with other items of jewellery such as necklaces, bracelets and rings will be asked to remove them.

Piercing to any other part of the body, such as the nose, eyebrow or belly-button is not considered suitable for school and therefore jewellery in these parts of the body must not be worn.

The following safety advice applies to Physical Education lessons:

  • All jewellery must be removed for P.E./swimming and remains the responsibility of the child.
  • There may be some occasions where an item of jewellery cannot be removed – for example, when ears have just been pierced. If this is the case, tape should be provided by you to put over the stud, so that any accidental knock to that part of the body does not result in the pin of the stud penetrating the skin below and behind the ear.
  • We would also ask that you ensure that children can remove any jewellery independently of the teacher.

Hair Style Requests

  • Pupils should avoid extremes of hairstyles and hair should be grade 2 or above in length and not have patterns or ridges shaved into it.
  • Children are expected to retain their natural hair colour. Hair braids and extensions are NOT permitted. If fitted during a holiday period, the braids should be removed before the beginning of the new term.
  • Hair accessories should be simple.
  • Shoulder length and longer hair must be tied back at all times in the interests of health and safety and to stop the spread of head lice. This applies to both girls and boys.
