JEWELLERY 

On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school. We do not encourage earrings, however if ears are pierced; only studs should be worn. We ask the children to either remove or cover earrings with a plaster or tape to prevent them from causing injury during P.E./Games lessons. In exceptional circumstances we permit children to wear medical wristbands if this has been recommended by a GP/Paediatrician.

HAIR ACCESSORIES

Hair styles for both girls and boys should be simple and easily managed. Extremes of styles or colours are not permitted. The school requests that the children do not have their hair coloured or shaved in elaborate styles. If hair is able to be tied up, then it should be at all times. Hair ornaments should be plain and simple. Fancy combs, slides, bobbles and clips and fashion braids can be dangerous, distract children from their learning and should not be worn. Beading in plaited hair is not appropriate as it can cause injury to the wearer and other children. We do not permit hair gel.

COSMETICS

We do not permit the children to wear makeup or nail polish to school. If worn, the children will be asked to remove it. 

We do not permit the children to wear aftershave or perfume.
