Jewellery

Students may wear one stud earring in each ear (no bigger than the ear lobe) and a watch, but no other jewellery is permitted.  Hooped earrings should not be worn at any time due to Health and Safety concerns.

All forms of facial piercings are not permitted except nose piercings worn for religious purposes.  Nose piercings worn for religious purposes, however, must be accompanied with a note in the​student’s planner.

Students wearing non-regulation jewellery, except for religious purposes, will be asked to remove it with immediate effect and this will be taken and stored in the main reception until it can be collected by a Parent/Carer.

The Halo Code

Uniform

Our school champions the right of staff and students to embrace all Afro-hairstyles. We acknowledge that Afro-textured hair is an important part of our Black staff and students’ racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious identities, and requires specific styling for hair health and maintenance.

We welcome Afro-textured hair worn in all styles including, but not limited to, afros, locs, twists, braids, cornrows, fades, hair straightened through the application of heat or chemicals, weaves, wigs, headscarves, and wraps.

At this school, we recognise and celebrate our staff and students’ identities. We are a community built on an ethos of equality and respect where hair texture and style have no bearing on anyone’s ability to succeed.

Equipment

Students are required to have the following equipment available to use in their lessons. Students are also required to bring a reading book with them each day.

Uniform

Pencil case containing:

  • Black/blue writing pens
  • Green writing pen
  • Pencils
  • Pencil Sharpener
  • Rubber
  • Ruler

If they are unable to provide any of the equipment above, they should contact their tutor or Year Team to discuss alternative arrangements.
