The wearing of jewellery in school is considered a health and safety risk. A single, plain stud in either or each ear is acceptable. Ear spacers, spikes and stretchers are not allowed. No hoops or dangling earrings are allowed. No body, nose, mouth or facial piercing are allowed. Badges that have been awarded by the school may be worn, but other badges are not allowed. A religious symbol (for example a crucifix) is allowed but other types of jewellery, including rings, are not allowed. If a pupil is wearing or has brought into school items that are not allowed, they must be removed and will be confiscated.
Pupils in Years 10 and 11 are allowed to use a minimal amount of subtle make-up. Long or false nails are not allowed. Nail varnish is not allowed. Pupils will be asked to remove excess make-up, nail varnish and false nails in school.
Pupils should have their hair arranged in a smart, tidy manner which conforms to health and safety considerations.
Lost property will be reduced if garments are marked with pupils’ names. The school recognises the diversity of its students and its obligation to equal opportunities. Any items worn or brought into school that do not conform to the school’s uniform will be confiscated. If parents have specific concerns about uniform, please contact the Headteacher.
If uniform does not meet expectations, a pupil can be kept in isolation until the situation is resolved.
