Can children wear jewellery at Kenningtons?

Because of health and safety regulations, we do not allow any jewellery to be worn in school. The exception to this is a wristwatch and a small pair of studs, which should be practical to wear and not a fashion item. If a child has forgotten to remove an item of jewellery prior to arrival at school we will ask them to remove the item and take it to the office for safe keeping until it can be collected at the end of the day. If jewellery is worn as a religious requirement, please contact the Headteacher to discuss the matter. 

What are the hairstyling requirements for children at Kenningtons?

Hairstyles should not be attention seeking. Extreme styles such as sculptured names/symbols, mohicans or dyed hair are neither appropriate nor acceptable for children of primary school age. For health and safety reasons long hair should be kept out of children's eyes and fully tied up for PE. 

Can children wear makeup and nail varnish at Kenningtons?
