HAIR

The policy specifically requires that hair should not be at the extremes of fashion. It should be smart, tidy and of natural colour. This is defined as:

  • “extreme” – not too short, nor too long, a “number 2” is the minimum acceptable in terms of shortness, hair should be groomed;
  • “artwork” on the scalp is regarded as a fashion extreme;
  • “natural colour” – this is taken to indicate colours that are natural in shade and tone.

Care and marking of property

Having provided your child with expensive items of clothing and equipment, please make sure that he/she takes good care of them.
Each item of clothing and property should be clearly and indelibly marked. Unless this is done we cannot help to find lost belongings. Name tapes which are sewn into clothes last longer than adhesive ones.

Make sure that your child realises the importance of thorough searching and quick reporting if any item is lost. Carelessness is responsible for far more loss than dishonesty and sometimes unmarked, quite valuable property (eg a watch), goes unclaimed because no one bothers to ask for it.

Lost Property – all items both named and unnamed, including items of sports kit will be available in the Atrium each Monday and Friday from 09:30 – 14:30. Unclaimed unnamed items of lost property will be disposed of at the end of the summer term or possibly each term if the storage space available is exceeded. The school can accept no responsibility for property lost on school premises.
