Mobile Phones

We advise that pupils do not bring mobile phones into the College.  However, we do recognise that some parents may wish their child to have a mobile phone with them as they travel to and from SJP.  Any mobile phones brought in should be both switched off as they enter the school premises and put away until they have left the premises.  We do not take any responsibility for loss of or damage to mobile phones.  Inappropriate use of phones in school will result in confiscation without notice (a receipt will be issued and phones may subsequently be obtained by parents/carers from Reception).  Should you need to contact your child in an emergency, please use the main College number 0151 645 5049.  Do not seek to contact your child in school directly as your child’s phone should be switched off as they enter the premises in the morning.


Hair & Make-up

Pupils are expected to wear hair in a neat and acceptable style.  Hair must be of one colour, natural in appearance.  Hair styles (including shaved heads) judged to be extreme by the Head Teacher are not permitted.  Make-up, including coloured nail varnish, lip gloss and fake tan, is not to be worn.  False nails, false eyelashes or other such beauty accessories are not acceptable.  Hair fashion accessories are also not to be worn.  Black or Navy ‘Bobbles’ are to be used when tying the hair back.  ‘Scrunchies’ are not allowed.  Hair bands are permissible but should also be navy blue or black in colour.  ‘Holiday braids’ are not permissible.  Pupils who do not conform to the College’s uniform and appearance policy will be sanctioned in line with our Behaviour Policy.



Apart from watches, jewellery (including studs, rings, earrings or any other body/facial piercings) is not to be worn.  This is because of the potential risk of accidental damage from the wearing of such items and they will be confiscated.  Charity bands (except for the chosen College charity) or charity lapel badges are not allowed.  We will do our best to assist your child in safeguarding their property.  However, the College does not take any responsibility for the loss of, or damage to, personal possessions brought on to site.  Large amounts of money or items of value (including personal electronic equipment [such as iWatches, iPods, iPads or other similar devices etc], electronic games or jewellery) should not be brought into the College.  Such items will be confiscated by staff (and can be obtained by parents from Reception).


The Headteacher reserves the right to make the final decision on what is or what is not appropriate.
