The Halo Code

The Halo Codeis a pledge, signed by schools and businesses, that promises members of the Black community that they have the freedom and security to wear all afro-hairstyles without restriction or judgment. At LPSB we are we have adopted the Halo Code, which states:

“Our school champions 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.

At this school, 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”

In addition to this statement, to comply with our school dress code, we request that:

  • Hats, bandanas, bonnets and du-rags are not allowed for students in school uniform. (except for outdoor hats in cold/hot weather)
  • Hair bands or other discreet accessories should be plain.
  • Headscarves should be plain and only worn for religious purposes.
