Jewellery, other than a sensible watch and plain stud earrings, should not be worn and pupils should not wear make-up, including nail varnish and temporary tattoos for school. Can parents also ensure children do not come to school with a fake-tan.

Earrings must be removed for P.E and swimming – please note that staff cannot remove or replace earrings for children and plasters are no longer allowed due to health and safety reasons. Children should not be allowed to do P.E if they have earrings in.

School also ask that hair accessories are also kept to a minimum with hair tied back with a simple bobble or hair grips and not the larger style of headband etc. We also ask that mobile phones and other expensive items are not brought into school.

Pupils who come into school in items other than stated on the dress code will in the first instance be reminded by an adult in school as to the appropriate dress, in the second instance will have a reminder letter sent home with them and on the third occasion parents may be asked to take their child home so that they may change into the correct school uniform.

All clothing and footwear should be clearly labelled with your child’s name
