We ask that pupils do not wear jewellery at school. This includes (with the exception of small studs), ear rings, rings, neck chains, bangles etc.  Small studs are permissible, providing your child is able to remove them independently for any physical education. This policy reflects national and County Council safety guidance.  This is to avoid possible injuries caused by jewellery to pupils during games and PE lessons.
