National Curriculum. A note will be required if your child is unfit to participate in these lessons.
Please mark ALL items of clothing with your child’s name!
Jewellery is not allowed apart from a watch.
NO Earrings are allowed on Health & Safety grounds, this includes own clothes days.
Accidents can happen when children are getting dressed and undressed, when they are playing outdoors or are taking part in PE.
If your child is having their ears pierced please wait until the summer holiday.
If they have had them pierced recently and are unable to take their earrings out yet, they must cover them with plasters until they are healed. Spare plasters must be sent into school for during the day. Once your child’s ears are healed their earrings must be removed before school.
Children wearing earrings will not be able to take part in PE for health and safety reasons.
Please note:- Nail polish, make-up or fake tan are not allowed.
Shaved heads and gelled hair styles are not allowed. A no.2 cut is the shortest acceptable cut, unnatural and/or extreme hair colours are not allowed. Pupils who fail to comply with the school’s dress code will be isolated or sent home. (This matches policy at St Monica’s RC High School.)
Hair bands and bobbles should be blue, white, brown or black in accordance with our school rules. Large bows, ribbons and flowers must not be worn for school and your child will be asked to remove them if they are wearing them.
The school reserves the right to decide what is considered to be suitable in terms of uniform.
