No badges to be worn except those of merit awarded by the school.

Pupils and parents should discuss with their Form Teacher or Year Head any queries about the policy or to discuss jewellery for religious observances. We are sensitive to and demonstrate a respect for the needs of different cultures, races and religions, and accommodate these needs within our general uniform policy.


Norwich High School for Girls has adopted the Halo Code. As such, we champion the right of staff and students to embrace all Afro-hairstyles. We acknowledge that Afro-textured hair is an important part of our black staff and students’ racial, ethnic, cultural, and religious identities, and requires specific styling for hair health and maintenance. We welcome Afro-textured hair worn in all styles including, but not limited to, afros, locs, twists, braids, cornrows, fades, hair straightened through the application of heat or chemicals, weaves, wigs, headscarves, and wraps. 

We recognise and celebrate our staff and students’ identities. We are a community built on an ethos of equality and respect where hair texture and style have no bearing on anyone’s ability to succeed.
