To comply with health and safety requirements in accordance with the ‘Health and Safety Policy’, the only permitted jewellery is small gold stud earrings.

Children may not wear any watch that has the capacity to do the following:
- connect to the internet or mobile phone,
- record audio,
- record still and/or moving images
- record audio and still and/or moving images.
Children are not permitted to wear any watches or jewellery if, in the school’s judgement, they detract from good behaviour and/or good learning or if it causes distraction, or causes a concern to the health and safety of the child or other individuals.
No jewellery may be worn during PE, swimming and games and children must be able to remove their earrings for physical activities.
If hair restricts vision, it must be tied back, throughout the school day, with a suitable band/scrunchie (large bows and flowers are not acceptable) and/or a soft hairband in school colours. No plastic or hard hairbands are to be worn for PE activities. Children who are unable to comply with these regulations will not be permitted to take part in these activities.
Where hair is braided, beads may not be included. Dyed hair, hair colouring, any additions, or hair extensions are also not permitted. No use of hair gel or other hair products is permitted. Shaved patterns in hair are not acceptable for school.
