The wearing of jewellery is not allowed in school except for discreet studs if a child has pierced ears.

Watches may be worn but the school takes no responsibility for the safe-keeping or for loss or damage of such articles.

In certain instances the wearing of jewellery can be dangerous such as in PE lessons, for health and safety reasons no jewellery can be worn during PE lessons.  The exception to the rule is in the case of recently pierced ears where a stud earring can be worn to prevent the hole from closing before it is established.  During this time a plaster must be worn over the studs in PE and during swimming lessons.
