A bag to keep PE uniform, which can be hung on a coat peg will also be required.

Jewellery

The wearing of jewellery by young children in school cannot be allowed, as it constitutes a safety hazard.

If it is absolutely necessary for a child to wear ear jewellery, this is limited to a single stud per ear which must be removed if the child is taking part in swimming or PE lessons.  School will not be liable for any loss of jewellery.

Hair

  • Long hair must be tied back for health and safety reasons.
  • Hair must not be excessively short or long.
  • Fashion hairstyles are discouraged for both boys and girls.

Please label all of your children’s clothing, footwear and belongings.
