For health and safety reasons jewellery should not be worn.
If pierced earrings have to be worn they should be small studs. They should be removed at home on days when the child will be doing PE, dance or swimming.
No necklaces, rings, bracelets or other items that adorn the body should be worn. Sensible watches may be worn at the discretion of parents, but the child must take responsibility for looking after his/her watch.
Watches that make noises or are playthings should not be brought to school as they are distracting in lessons.
Hair accessories should be sensible and in keeping with school wear (ie small blue head bands or bobbles), children with long hair should wear it tied up. School does not allow head coverings of any description to be worn. This is in line with guidance from the LA for religious observance in primary schools.
Hair styles should be appropriate for school. Governors deem it unacceptable for ‘tramlines’ and other designs to be shaved into pupils’ hair. Hairstyles that include ’mohicans’ or ‘mohawks’ are also considered to be unacceptable. Any colour that is put onto hair should also be in keeping with the rest of school uniform.
In the event of these hairstyles appearing in school parents will be contacted in order to provide a haircut that is suitable for school.
Nail varnish should not be worn for school.
Purchasing School Uniform
School uniform is available from the National School Supplies shop in Hanley (Stafford Street).
We recognise the financial implication of purchasing uniform for children who grow so quickly and are often quick to get through it. With this in mind we recycle good quality school uniform which is available to buy from the school office with items starting from as little as 50p. This will enable all families to provide uniform for their children.
