Book Bags

Book bags should be brought into school daily especially when reading books are being taken home.  We will place all communication letters into your child’s book bag so please check daily.  However, it is logistically impossible for us to check all book bags every day for each child.  If you need to send a note into school please can you either give it directly to a member of staff (office or teaching team) or put it in your child’s hand so they remember to hand it in.

 

PLEASE LABEL ALL CLOTHING

Everything brought into school should be labelled and named, including vests, shoes, coats and detachable hoods.

Trousers/Skirts
Students must wear black trousers, or regulation skirts for girls.  Skirts must be knee length and tailored, no stretch material is permitted.  This list has been designed to create a formal not fashionable look.

General Matters

Make Up

The school discourages the wearing of any make up including nail varnish, as it is contrary to the business like values the school aims to promote. If make up is worn, then it must be of a very discrete nature. Acrylic nails should not be worn at any time.

Hair Styles

For Health and Safety reasons, and to support the general business like values of the school, the school expects students to have reasonable hairstyles and colours. If the Principal, or a member of staff acting for the Principal, considers a student’s hair style to be unreasonable, then the student will be asked to rectify the matter.

School Bags

All students should bring a ‘School Bag’ to school every day. A ‘School Bag’ is defined by the School as a bag which is suitable to carry books of up to A4 size, basic equipment and kit for other subjects. Typically, students carry small waterproof rucksacks.

Jewellery

The School has agreed that one small ear stud may be worn in each ear. Apart from this, for Health and Safety reasons and to promote the general business like values of the school, no jewellery may be worn. This includes rings, neck chains and facial piercing such as nose and lip studs.

Wearing earrings whilst participating in physical activity can be extremely dangerous and therefore is not allowed.

Long Hair

Long or acrylic nails
