Hair should be neat and tidy and long hair should be tied back for health and safety reasons and to prevent the spread of head lice. Hair accessories should be small  and discrete in blue, grey or black. No fancy hair accessories.

Not to be worn:

  • Jewellery (except sensible wrist watches)
  • Fancy earrings (only small silver or gold studs which must be removed or covered with tape for PE/Swimming)

PE KITS

All children are expected to have appropriate kit for PE lessons. This should include blue shorts, a house colour t-shirt, which can be obtained from the school office and plimsolls.

Depending on the PE skill being taught, teachers may request suitable outdoor kit at times throughout the year.

No jewellery should be worn except stud earrings or watches. These cannot be worn for PE and so children should be able to remove these themselves. If you are thinking about having your child’s ears pierced this should be at the beginning of the summer holidays.

The Federation of The Downs and Northbourne is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and we expect all Governors, staff, volunteers, parents and carers to share this commitment.
