Pupils are allowed to wear a watch to school but they must take full responsibility for it. Watches must also be removed for PE lessons.

Hair bands, ribbons/bows or ‘scrunchies’ should be of one colour and of a reasonable size. Hair bands should not have overly large flowers or other decorations attached. Make up and nail varnish should not be worn to school unless for an out of school hours function, for example a school disco. Extreme hairstyles are not appropriate for school. The use of styling products should be kept to a minimum and children should not have decorative patterns cut into their hair or have hair coloured or dyed.
