Jewellery

Parents are advised that it is unsafe for children to wear jewellery to gym and drama classes. The recommendation is that no child wearing jewellery should participate in gym for his/her own safety. This covers rings, earrings, chains, watches and bracelets. The school cannot take responsibility for children wearing these items to school. If a pupil brings a plaster to cover a stud earring they must do so themselves and not expect other pupils, teachers or staff do so. The School will not accept responsibility for the child’s safety when wearing pierced earrings.

The easiest course of action would be for children to come to school without jewellery, as we cannot be held responsible for any item left or stolen within the school. Staff will not hold items of jewellery for safekeeping. We are sorry if this causes you any inconvenience or concern, but we are sure you can see the benefits from the Health and Safety perspective.

 

Unacceptable Clothing

This includes items which;

  • could potentially encourage factions (e.g. football colours);
  • could cause offence (e.g. anti-religious symbolism, racist or political slogans);
  • could cause health and safety difficulties such as loose fitting clothing, dangling earrings and other potentially dangerous jewellery;
  • are of flammable materials which may be a danger in certain classes (e.g. shell suits);
  • could cause damage to flooring or other property;
  • carry advertising for brands and in particular those for alcohol or tobacco; and
  • could be used to inflict damage on other pupils or to be used by others to do so.
