No jewellery please

16th April 2021
Jewellery is not permitted as part of the school uniform. It is better if primary aged children do not have their ears pierced due to difficulties in removing earrings and keeping them safe. However, one pair of plastic insert flat stud earrings may be allowed under certain circumstances and with prior agreement. For P.E. the child must remove these items preferably before coming to school (they must be able to do this by themselves). We follow current Health and Safety guidelines in physical education (see below). This means that jewellery should not be worn in P.E. and earrings should be removed for the lesson. Where piercings are still healing within any advised period (e.g. 6 weeks) and a pupil is unable to remove their earrings, then that pupil will not actively participate in the lesson in line with these guidelines.
