Long hair should be tied back at all times. Tramlines and Mohawk or other extreme haircuts are not permitted during term times.  Hair ties/clips, hairbands and hijabs must be plain teal, white, black or grey. Other fashion accessories such as nail varnish and make-up are not acceptable in school.


Jewellery is generally not allowed in school for two main reasons: firstly, if it is lost it is difficult to trace and causes a great deal of upset and, secondly, it is a constant source of accidents in schools. One exception to this rule is the small stud earrings. However, these should be very small and not protrude much from the ear lobe. Your support in this matter will be greatly appreciated and will help us in our constant efforts to ensure the children's safety at school. No jewellery to be worn to school on PE days, please leave at home.

Children may wear a wristwatch to school. However, smartwatches are not permitted.
