Hi, I hope your first week back hasn't been too manic. This is no means a worry or a dilemma, just a simple wondering and the opportunity for a friendly discussion. Earlier in the week I had to talk to my tutor group about a few piercings I'd seen pop up. Our school rules are that they are allowed two studs in their ears, the school is a bit lenient on this for example you can have an upper ear piercing and one other or two studs in the lobes, but no more than that - basically no more than two pieces of jewellery in the ear. However doing this I felt quite hypocritical. I have my lobes pierced twice and two other piercings, giving six piercings in total. I was interviewed with my piercings in, I was hired with them in and they have never been questioned at the school. What are your views? Should teachers be allowed piercings? Tattoos? (I have none on show at any point). Should students be allowed to have piercings if they want them?
