Parents are urged to see that children leave valuables at home. Watches are acceptable. Ear piercings are limited to one per ear and only studs must be worn. No facial piercings under any circumstances. We will ask that they are removed. Lost jewellery causes the owner and parents much distress and items of jewellery must be removed for games/PE lessons (including any such extra-curricular activity). School cannot be responsible for any loss of jewellery if items are not handed in to the teacher leading the PE/Games lesson. It is advised that small items should be placed in a small box to avoid loss of the items.
Students may not wear body or tongue piercings to school.
It would be particularly helpful if parents who are considering having their children’s ears pierced should arrange for this to be done at the beginning of the holiday period. Training studs may not be removed for a lengthy period and this could mean that the child concerned would not be able to take part in a range of activities within the Physical Education curriculum.
Students may not wear make-up, nail extensions or nail varnish to school.
