Uniform Standards

Jewellery

  • Pupils are permitted to wear a plain wristwatch. All other items of jewellery are not allowed.
  • No smart watches.
  • Earrings and other piercings are not permitted.  Pupils are not permitted to cover piercings with plasters.  Piercings must be removed.
    Should you wish your child to have their ears pierced, please ensure that this takes place at the beginning of the summer holidays so that they can safely remove earrings for school in September.
  • If any item of jewellery is seen on a pupil, it will be confiscated and handed to Reception and only returned to a parent/carer.

Make-Up

  • Make-up and nail varnish are not permitted in school.
  • Any pupil wearing make-up/nail varnish will be asked to remove it with products supplied by school.
  • False eyelashes and false nails are not permitted.
  • Any pupil attending school wearing make-up, eyelashes or nails, will be expected to remove them or they will be placed in isolation.

Hair

  • Pupils should be well groomed with clean hair and the whole face visible at all times.
  • Hair should be one natural colour.
  • Boys should be clean shaven.
  • Extreme hairstyles, including unnatural colours, hair extensions or decorative beads are not permitted.
