The wearing of school uniform is encouraged for a number of reasons:

  • a uniform is smart and encourages a sense of identity
  • it prevents undesirable ‘fashion competitions’ between pupils
  • it prevents the perpetual battle about what to wear each morning.


Children attending Pre Nursery are not required to wear uniform but may choose to do so if they wish. Uniform is required from Nursery – Year 4.

Jewellery and Watches

The wearing of jewellery (rings, bracelets, necklaces, brooches, clip-on earrings etc) in school is not allowed.  Watches may be worn, but audible alarms should be switched off.  Watches must be removed for swimming and P.E. lessons and other physical activities.
Children with pierced ears should remove their earrings, children who are unable to remove jewellery themselves should be discouraged from wearing it to school. Taping of jewellery can create a perception of safety and is not recommended.  Tape can often fall off and does not reduce the risk of compression injury.
Where children wear jewellery for religious or cultural purposes the school will sensitively inform parents of the safety hazards these articles present in physical education.  It must be stressed that the teacher’s prime responsibility is for the safety of the pupils.  Where a decision is made to allow some types of religious jewellery then the teaching activity would be amended to ensure the safety of the child.

The school will not accept responsibility for any injury caused by the wearing of earrings, nor for the loss of earrings or watches.
