The Halo Code

Our school champions the right of staff and students to embrace all Afro-hairstyles. We acknowledge that Afro-textured hair is an important part of our Black staff and students’ racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious identities, and requires specific styling for hair health and maintenance.

We welcome Afro-textured hair worn in all styles including, but not limited to, Afros, locs, twists, braids, cornrows, fades, hair straightened through the application of heat or chemicals, weaves, wigs, headscarves, and wraps.

At this school, we recognise and celebrate our staff and students’ identities. We are a community built on an ethos of equality and respect where hair texture and style have no bearing on anyone’s ability to succeed.


Governors request that parents/carers do not allow their child to wear jewellery in school.  Jewellery, if any, should be limited to one set of small stud earrings and a wristwatch. All jewellery is to be removed for PE lessons, so please ensure that either your child can remove earrings by themselves or does not wear earrings on PE days.  All jewellery is worn at owner’s risk and the school will accept no responsibility for any items lost.

If, for religious reasons, your child wears a piece of jewellery that cannot be removed, we will ask you to complete a form accepting liability for this, to be approved by the Headteacher.
