Personal presentation

  • Hair: For health and safety reasons, long hair needs to be tied up. Hair should be a natural colour and the style should be “non-threatening” to others.
  • Jewellery, watches, earrings: For a number of reasons we do not permit children to wear jewellery at school, except for a watch, and studs if your child has pierced ears.
  • Nail polish: We do not permit students to wear nail polish.
