Parents and Carers are requested to arrange for children who wish to have their ears pierced during the school year to have this done at the beginning of the summer holiday so that the pierced hole will heal during the holiday period and the earring(s) can be removed before the child returns to school in September. 

We do not allow pupils to wear earrings at any time, including when they have recently had their ears pierced. No other body piercings are allowed.

We operate this rule to protect the health and safety of our pupils. 


Haircuts should look smart and not follow extreme fashion trends which draw unnecessary attention to the pupil.  The wearing of hair braids or beads is not allowed on health and safety grounds. Long hair should be tied back with uniform coloured hairbands. 

Make -Up

Children should not wear make-up or nail varnish in school.


We take a pride in our uniform and expect pupils to look smartly dressed in full school uniform.

You must try to keep this neat and tidy. 

The uniform helps you feel that you belong to Greneway and you don’t have to spend time worrying about what to wear in the mornings! 

You must wear your full school uniform on the way to and from school.

Requests for alterations in uniform to meet individual religious, cultural or special needs will be given careful consideration.

Should you have any queries regarding the school uniform or any aspect of this guidance please contact the school office on 01763 243 650.


Parents / Carers experiencing financial difficulties in equipping their child with the correct uniform should contact the School.
