    While recognising that each student will wish to wear her/his hair in an individual style, the Governors are not prepared to accept extreme hairstyles which are not in sympathy with the school ethos which emphasises traditional values, neatness and tidiness.

The Governors have delegated decisions within these policies to the Headteacher who will, if necessary, refuse entry to a student until such time as his/her uniform, hairstyle or appearance is deemed appropriate.

All students are required to be clean shaven and any student entering school with facial hair will be provided with shaving equipment by the school’s Welfare Assistant in order to remove it.

The Headteacher will, if necessary, refuse entry to a student until such time as their uniform, hairstyle or appearance is deemed appropriate.
