Second hand Uniform

Jewellery and make-up
Children may not wear make-up (including nail-polish) in school.
Jewellery, including watches, should not be worn in school for safety reasons and to prevent loss and breakages. Small studs to be worn in pierced ears but not hoops or large ear-rings.
Following regulations from the government and in consultation with the county's PE adviser it is necessary to make parents aware of the danger of wearing any kind of jewellery during a PE lesson. Children can have their ears ripped and ear-rings can fall out and be trodden on by other pupils causing punctures to the feet. We therefore ask all parents or guardians to ensure that children with pierced ears only wear small ear-studs to school and that these are removed at home on PE days. This is necessary because we are not permitted to accept the responsibility of removing and replacing ear-studs.
Should your child have their ears pierced after they have been admitted to the school, you should write to the Headteacher asking for permission to have your child’s ear-studs covered by surgical tape on PE days. This will only be for six weeks while the ears heal.
You will be informed of the days your child does PE at the start of the new term.
The school cannot take any responsibility for the loss of any valuable items.
All clothing, including shoes, should be clearly named, preferably with iron in or sew on labels. It is the children’s responsibility to take care of their possessions, however, if an item is lost then parents should ask a member of the office staff if they may look in the lost property boxes.
