- Jewellery: One pair of stud earrings may be worn to school. For safety reasons, earrings will have to be removed or covered with surgical tape during physical education lessons. Watches are permitted and advisable.
- Makeup and nail varnish must be removed before school and no body art.
- Hair must be tied back and off the face. Hairstyles must be appropriate – shaved designs are not allowed. Any hair bands worn must be undecorated and muted in colour.
- Swimming: When your child goes swimming they need to remember their kit each week: towel, girls – one-piece swimsuit and boys – trunks (which do not go below the knee) and goggles if possible. For health and safety reasons earrings need to be removed.
Please name all your child’s possessions, as this saves a great deal of teaching time if items are mislaid.
