Additional Guidelines

Children are to wear school shoes.  These should be flat with no heels, no open toes and black.   Children are not permitted to wear trainers as school footwear except for PE lessons.   


Children can wear boots in the cold winter weather.  However, children must bring other shoes to change in to. Children are not permitted to wear boots in school. 


We do not allow fashion jewellery.  If a child has a pierced ear a simple stud may be worn.   Studs MUST be removed for PE and swimming.  Watches may be worn by children in KS2 but the school accepts no responsibility for loss or damage.


Please note: children must NOT wear tattoos or nail varnish for school.


Long hair should be tied back using a simple hair tie. No large ribbons or bows please.
