The school fully supports The Halo Code.
The Halo Code
Our school champions the right of staff and students to embrace all Afro-hairstyles. We acknowledge that Afro-textured hair is an important part of our Black staff and students’ racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious identities, and requires specific styling for hair health and maintenance.
We welcome Afro-textured hair worn in all styles including, but not limited to, afros, locs, twists, braids, cornrows, fades, hair straightened through the application of heat or chemicals, weaves, wigs, headscarves, and wraps.
At this school, we recognise and celebrate our staff and students’ identities. We are a community built on an ethos of equality and respect where hair texture and style have no bearing on anyone’s ability to succeed.
Watches may be worn
If children have their ears pierced they can wear plain studs no bigger than 4mm
All earrings must be removed by the child for PE. Please note, staff are not allowed to tape up or remove earrings for children for PE.
ALL ITEMS OF SCHOOL UNIFORM AND EQUIPMENT INCLUDING BAGS AND SHOES MUST BE CAREFULLY NAMED
This avoids unnecessary losses.
