school does not allow children to wear jewellery on health and safety
grounds. However, there are two exceptions:
earrings in pierced ears.
objects of religious significance where this has been agreed with
both cases, we ask the children either to remove these objects during
PE and games lessons, or to cover earrings with a plaster.
should not wear makeup or coloured nail varnish.
school strongly advises that children do not have extreme haircuts
that could serve as a distraction to other children. Examples include
patterns shaved into hair
or highlighted hair.
advise that those with long hair wear it tied back in school to
reduce distraction, be comfortable on hot days and
to reduce the spread of headlice.
