STUDS/BARS, HAIR AND FACIAL PIERCINGS

Governors appreciate the inherent danger in studs/bars being worn and so advise that only one stud in each ear will be allowed, but these must be removed for P E and Games lessons because of the increased danger. No make-up or other form of ornamentation is allowed. No extremes of hairstyle including tram lines and designs shaved into hair will be permitted, or facial piercing, i.e. lip, nose or eyebrow studs.

MOBILE PHONES

Students are allowed to bring mobile phones for contacting parents before or after the end of the school day, but they must remain switched off and in a school bag during the school day. The school will not take any responsibility for loss or damage to any mobile phones brought into school. Mobiles will be confiscated if found being used during school hours, they will be taken to reception where they can be collected at the end of the school day. 3 confiscations means a parent or carer will have to collect the phone from the school office.

ELECTRONIC DEVICES/iPODS etc

iPods and other similar electronic devices are not allowed in school. The school takes no responsibility for items lost or damaged in school
