Essential information for health and safety reasons

Shoes or clothes that restrict movement e.g. flip flops, shoes with high heels or very strappy sandals, are not permitted. If a child does not have alternative footwear eg PE shoes parents will be contacted and asked to bring in something appropriate.


Watches can be worn, but jewellery is not allowed. Plain stud earrings may be worn but in the interests of Health and Safety they must be removed for swimming and PE, although it is acceptable to tape them over for PE if they cannot be removed.

If jewellery cannot be removed parents are required to complete a form taking full responsibility.


In the summer hats should be worn outside. Hats are not worn during lessons inside the building.

Fashion hats, scarves, accessories, make up etc. are not to be worn unless permission has been given eg for a dressing up day or school performance.


Health and Safety must always be a priority when special permission is given for children to wear other clothes and parents must make sure that children’s footwear is flat and suitable for running/climbing on apparatus in the playgrounds.
