  • Trainers for outdoor games only – these may be worn during breaks and lunch.
  • Black plimsolls for indoor PE – this is for health and safety reasons – outdoor trainers not permitted indoors.


  • It is encouraged that pupils do not wear jewellery to school, especially as individuals become very upset if a treasured piece of jewellery goes missing.
  • Should a pupil have pierced ears, plain studs should only be worn and in order to comply with health and safety regulations. During PE activities, these must be covered with a plaster or removed – children must be taught how to do this themselves.

Please note that the school will be unable to take any responsibility for any jewellery that is lost.


  • Watches may be worn to school. However, they must be removed and collected by the class teacher before any PE lessons and kept in a container for safe storage.

Please note that the school will be unable to take any responsibility for any watches that are lost.

  • Children should not have spiked hairstyles or shaved lines
  • Long hair should be tied back at all times, especially during Physical Education lessons for safety
