Plain ear studs are the only jewellery allowed in school – only one stud allowed per ear. These must be removed for P.E. and swimming. It is preferable for ear-piercing to take place during the summer holidays to allow time for healing to take place.
Ear studs must be removed for swimming lessons and should be removed by the children themselves. It may be appropriate for children not to wear any ear studs on days when swimming takes place.
Children who need to keep studs in after recently having their ears pierced may not be able to do swimming for a while or may have to cover their ear lobes with tape for P.E. This follows strict guidance from the Local Education Authority on this matter.
Watches may be worn from Year 3 onwards. (Watches ‘bleeping’ in class may be confiscated as they disturb others). Long hair should be tied back using yellow or brown bands, flat grips, etc. No artificial braids or hair jewellery allowed. No extreme hair cuts.
Hands: Nail varnish should not be worn in school.
