Uniform

We see every child as an ambassador for our school and expect them to take a real pride in their appearance.

Jewellery and Nail Varnish

No jewellery (including earrings) should be worn to school. If you choose to have your child's ears pierced while they are in primary school it should be done at the beginning of the summer holiday to allow time for the piercings to heal before the new school year begins. Children who come to school wearing earrings need to have them covered with micropore tape or plasters. Where children have pierced ears that are still healing and so they are unable to remove earrings, flat, clear ear piercing retainers may be worn until the piercings have healed.

Nail varnish is not permitted in school.
