You may also request items of 2nd hand uniform by contacting the Friends via the school or sending a note in with your child.

Jewellery

Jewellery should be discreet and limited to: 1 watch, 1 bracelet, no more than one ring on each hand and a maximum of 2 stud earrings only (1 in each ear lobe); all of which need to be removed for PE.  It is very important for safety and hygiene for your child to wear suitable clothing for P.E. lessons.  Please note that Surrey County Council and the school’s PE Policy clearly state that any earrings must be removed for PE lessons (covering with tape or plasters is not acceptable).

We also ask that students do not get their ears pierced during term time as they will not be able to remove these for six weeks, impacting on their ability to take part in PE. Please ensure that, if your child is planning to have any ear piercing, it is done at the start of the holidays to allow time to heal before they return to school.
