All jewellery needs to be removed for PE. Taping for any reason is not allowed under the Essex County Council Health & Safety Policy. If children can remove their earrings, we can put them in a small envelope to take home. However, if they cannot take their earrings out children will have to sit out of PE. With this in mind, if you intend to have your child’s ears pierced we recommend that you do so at the start of the summer break, allowing time for them to heal and for the earrings to be safely removed without closing.
