Jewellery
For safety reasons, jewellery should not be worn for school. If a child’s ears have been pierced only plain studs should be worn at school, and these should be removed for all PE activities; please be aware that no staff member can be responsible for removing jewellery. For this reason, we kindly request that piercing of ears takes place at the beginning of the long summer break to allow sufficient time for these to heal and for children to learn how to remove earrings themselves.

If your child chooses to wear a wristwatch for school, it is advisable for this to be clearly named.
