Glasgow City Council Welcome to Dunard Primary School & Nursery Class

Personal Jewellery Piercings

Dear Parent/Carer,

The summer break is the ideal time for pupils to have personal jewellery piercings if you are doing this.

 This break can allow any piercing wounds to heal which then allows the jewellery to be removed for activities such as physical education or play.

 It coincides with the current advice from the Physical Education Code of Practice  (2.7 General Precautions) which states the following:

 ‘Personal effects (e.g. jewellery, body piercings, items of  religious significance, watches, hair slides and belts constitute a hazard and may cause injury if worn whilst participating in Physical Education and must be removed.

 

Kindest regards and best wishes
