General Rules on Appearance and Jewellery

 

Hair Styles. These must be a reasonable style, length and colour. Shaved or part shaved heads, Mohican style hair cuts are not acceptable. Hair colour changes should only be to naturally occurring hair colours and should be the same colour all over.
Piercing. Only one small, plain “stud” per ear, in the lobe, is allowed to be worn. NO OTHER piercing, with a ring or stud etc is permitted and covering with a plaster WILL NOT be allowed as an alternative to removal. It is vital therefore that, if you give your child permission to have any piercing, it must be done at the start of a long school holiday, in order that any piercing jewellery can be removed during the school day.
Make-up. This must be “subtle” and unnoticeable; coloured nail varnish is not permitted.
Jewellery. Students may wear a watch and one modest ring per hand. Necklaces or neck chains may not be worn. Only one bracelet may be worn. The school will not take responsibility for the loss of any item of jewellery brought into school, and watches/other permitted jewellery should be placed in students’ lockers before PE lessons.
Tattoos. No student is allowed to have temporary or semi-permanent tattoos in any visible position (including visible during PE). Permanent tattoos are of course illegal for any one under the age of 18 (Tattooing of Minors Act 1969), so we would assume that no student will come to school displaying one of these.

For those students that do not comply with uniform expectations.

If pupils are not wearing the correct uniform they will be offered alternative, washed items of uniform if they are available. Parents will be contacted and asked to rectify the problem for the next day.

If a pupil fails to bring in correct PE kit, he or she will be offered spare kit. Refusal to wear this will result in a detention

If the student refuses to wear the washed uniform, their parents will be asked to bring in the correct uniform, or to tell their children to wear the school's spare items.

Where a pupil refuses to wear the correct uniform despite requests by the school and his or her parents, this will be deemed a refusal to carry out a reasonable instruction and will lead to the pupil being placed in isolation for the rest of the day.

The school reserves the right to send students home to correct infringements of uniform and appearance rules, in line with current exclusions guidance.
