KELMSCOTT SCHOOL UNIFORM
All students must wear school uniform. We believe this to be very important for a number of reasons, notably, as it gives a sense of belonging which can help in many aspects of school life. No item of school uniform should follow the changes of popular fashion; such styles are usually unsuitable and occasionally unsafe for the busy life of a
To this end we ask that parents/carers give us full support in ensuring their children wear the correct uniform at all times. Full details of the correct uniform requirements are found within the journal.
Valuables and Jewellery
Students are permitted to wear one pair of small silver or gold studs (one in each ear) no diamond/gemstones should be worn in school. Students may also wear one small plain discrete ring and watch. One nose stud, which is a small plain silver gold stud is allowed, otherwise there must be no facial jewellery, no piercings or tattoos. This is the only jewellery permitted. The school is entitled to confiscate any unsuitable jewellery.
The school accepts no responsibility for banned items brought into school or items confiscated for inappropriate use.
The Headteacher’s decision on the appropriateness of uniform, hairstyle and jewellery for school is final.

PE Lessons and Valuables
During PE lessons pupils must remove all items of jewellery . It is the responsibility of pupils to hand in all valuables to PE staff at the beginning of the lesson. The PE staff cannot be responsible for any valuables left in the changing rooms.
If stud earrings are new and cannot be removed, pupils must ensure they have plasters with them to stick over them to prevent injury. Please note that all religious jewellery must be removed during lessons for health and safety of the pupils.
