Earrings: Can you please ensure that if your child has pierced ears, they wear studs for school, not fashion earrings. Your child must also be able to take them out by themselves when they have P.E. as no earrings at all are allowed during this lesson, for health and safety reasons. When children go to High School, they are not allowed earrings at school at any time, or under any circumstance. Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

Hair accessories: Following some debate and confusion, we can now confirm the school policy on hair accessories starting from Monday 5th June 2017. We realise the opinions around hair accessories are very polarised. We have spoken to staff, pupils, parents and governors and the views are all very different, and we know we are never going to please everybody all the time. Ultimately, as a school, we need to make the final decision. Many people wanted to ban all hair accessories, especially giant "jojo bows", but others couldn't see the problem with them. We think we have reached a fair compromise and the rules are as follows:

  • The school navy blue and yellow small accessories found in Ashton are strongly encouraged (please pop into school for a picture)
  • Only small, plain navy blue bows (maximum 12cm)
  • No diamante, sparkles, sequins etc.

Inappropriate uniform consequences 

At high school, pupils are isolated at break and lunchtimes if they do not have the correct uniform. Detentions for having no PE kit may also be expected. 

At Nicol Mere we try to give plenty of warnings and opportunities for pupils and parents to ensure they have the correct uniform. After this, consequences may be applied such as isolation, or removal of some privileges e.g. not allowed in the football cages etc 

This will also apply to not having the correct PE kit on a regular basis. Any medical evidence must be given to school in writing.
