Can my child wear earrings for school?
Yes, however earrings MUST be removed by a parent before school each PE day or if your child is able to do this themselves, please provide a small lidded pot for them to keep their earrings safely in school. If you do not remove your child’s earrings they will not be able to fully participate in their PE lesson and as a result will take a less active role which we would prefer not to happen. If you are considering allowing your child to have their ears pierced we would suggest waiting until the start of the summer holidays whereby they will have 6 weeks to heal and for them to practise removing them; enabling you to be able to follow our new policy.
