· Watches are not classed as jewellery.
· A necklace with a light chain and a small plain emblem may be worn - to be kept under the shirt. This must be removed for PE.
· The wearing of earrings is inappropriate and not encouraged. However, where pupils have pierced ears a plain studonly may be worn, no more than one in either ear lobe.
· If pupils have piercings which require them to wear additional jewellery, such as nose studs, extra ear studs, eyebrow studs, tongue studs, they will be told to remove them during the learning day even if this means that the piercing will close up. Retainers are not acceptable. If pupils do not conform to this then they may be sent home. Ear stretchers should be no larger than 1cm. They must be removed for PE and the hole in the ear taped up.
