Please note additional uniform regulations:

  • All school uniform and additional items should be clearly labelled with your child's name.  
  • Items of jewellery should not be worn in school as they can be easily lost and can be very dangerous during PE and break times. The only exception to this is stud earrings. These must be removed or taped up by the child before taking part in any PE lessons.
  • Make up, nail varnish, tattoos and dyed hair are not permitted.
  • Long hair should be tied up with a suitable band. Please save large hairbands and accessories for sponsored dress up days and special events.
