Haircuts

When choosing where to get your child’s hair styled, please do consider that we follow the same haircut rules as Saffron Walden County High School.

· Students may not dye their hair an unnatural hair colour and highlights/streaks and dip dyed ends are not allowed. Hairstyles judged to be extreme by the Headteacher or Senior Leadership team are not permitted.

· No students may have their hair cut shorter than a barbers’ number 2.

· Hair must be tied back if it is shoulder length or longer, with a plain coloured hairband.

· Hairbands must be plain and a colour that complements the school uniform, such as navy, black, white or grey. All novelty hairbands, such as cat ears, flowers and large bows are not permitted.

Children with novelty hairbands will be asked that they remove them and not wear them again. Students breaking the hairstyle regulations with extreme cuts may be educated away from their class until their hair grows back or becomes a natural colour again.

 

Jewellery

We understand that pierced ears needs earrings to avoid the holes closing up. So, to this end, children are allowed to wear plain stud earrings. They should not wear earrings if they are unable to remove them themselves for PE.

* Wristwatches may be worn at the child’s own risk, but children need to be able to remove and replace independently.

* Charity wrist bands if the school is promoting the cause.

 

Make-up

Fortunately, it is rare that a child arrives at school wearing make-up. When this does occur, it is generally nail varnish that hasn’t been removed from the weekend. Please be reminded that no make-up may be worn.

If your child is wearing make-up, including nail varnish, they will be sent to the school office where they will be given the means to remove it.

 

Swimming Kit

There are Katherine Semar Swimming costumes available from Grey Palmers, however, children may wear their own one-piece swimming costume of any colour. There are also Katherine Semar swimming hats, although children may choose to wear their own swimming hat. In addition, children may choose to wear goggles. All swimming kit must be tight fitting rather than baggy shorts. i.e. children may not wear Bermuda shorts.

Spare swimming kit will not be issued to children without kit (except for special circumstances). It is the responsibility of the class teacher to make sure parents are informed and swimming kit is brought up to the school. If a child repeatedly fails to bring swimming kit in, it is the responsibility of the class teacher to discuss this with the parent and if necessary inform a member of the senior management team.

Children who are not swimming due to a lack of kit will still go to the swimming pool with work to complete.
