Jewellery, makeup and hair colour
Llangatwg pupils should not wear any items of facial or body jewellery e.g. eye or nose studs / rings / bars etc. This is due to the significant Health and Safety risks that they might present. However, pupils may wish to wear one earing (stud or small ring) in each ear and one ring on a finger on each hand. Please also note that jewellery items should be removed prior to PE / Games lessons and handed to teachers for safe keeping.
Pupils should not wear facial makeup and hair colour should be in keeping with the school’s formal dress. The Headteacher will make any final decision about appearance if a pupil does not comply with policy requirements.
