"Stikins name labels are a thoroughly modern alternative to sew-in name tapes and iron-on name tags. They simply stick on to the wash-care label of clothing and fabric items or directly onto personal items as shoes labels, lunchbox labels, school labels, and general purpose name tags. Designed for busy families, Stikins are multipurpose name labels that allow parents to label dozens of items quickly and easily, with no fuss, no mess, and not an iron or sewing needle in sight!"

The uniform requirements for physical activities are as follows:

If for any reason your child is unable to participate in either P.E. or swimming, please provide a letter in advance of the lesson.
Children may wear a watch, one pair of small stud earrings and/or one small item of religious jewellery. Children may not wear any other decorative piercings to the face or body whilst in school. This is inline with John Port Spencer Academy policy.
Earrings can be dangerous during activities such as Games and P.E. and therefore should be removed. Children need to be able to remove and replace their own earrings.
If ears have been recently pierced and earrings cannot be removed, an exception can be made and earrings can be taped over for Games/P.E. but not for swimming. The children need to bring their own micropore tape and be able to do this themselves. Parents/Carers must sign a disclaimer form beforehand (the PDF for it can be found below) it is also available from the school office or can be found in the policy section on the school website.
Earrings cannot be worn for swimming under any circumstances
If you are considering ear piercing for your child, please arrange for this to be done at the start of the summer holidays as normally they cannot be removed for at least six weeks after piercing.
Please see the earring policy (below) for more details.
