Jewellery in School
At Air Balloon Hill– children may not wear jewellery to school, with the exception of a watch or jewellery which is of a religious significance. If ears are pierced children may wear studs or very small hoops, maximum 8mm. These should not be worn to school on PE or swimming days. If they are worn the child must remove them for PE, swimming and certain technologies. Staff will not do this for them. Earrings can be taped – see above.
The school will not take any responsibility for any jewellery that is lost at school, nor for any accidents that occur due to jewellery being worn
No make-up should be worn in school. False nail extensions are not permitted.
The school recommends that hair should be neat and tidy. Long hair should be tied back especially during PE activities for safety.
Recognising that the school is a diverse community and some religions and beliefs require children to follow a particular dress code, the school will make any necessary amendments to this policy to allow this to happen. Reasonable requests to vary the School Uniform Policy to meet the needs of individual pupils to accommodate their religion or belief, ethnicity, disability or other special considerations should be discussed with the Headteacher.
