Children should wear appropriate footwear, which supports and protects their feet both in the classroom and while playing outdoors. Black school shoes or black trainers are acceptable, but flip-flops, high heels, football boots and so on should be avoided.
Your child will need a coat at school every day. We do try to get the children out for a run around, even if it is raining.
Reception, Year 1 and Year 3 boys and girls – pumps, shorts and T-shirt
Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 boys and girls – pumps, shorts and T-shirt for indoor P.E., and trainers and jumper or tracksuit for outdoor P.E. Football boots are useful.
Logo’d P.E. kit is optional. If desired, it can be ordered directly from our suppliers, listed above.
Families can order bookbags from our suppliers, listed above.
Please put your child’s name on everything as it is very hard to re-unite lost property with its owner.
We’d prefer children not to wear earrings, but if they do…
It must be no more than one stud (not hoops or hooks) in each ear lobe.
The child must be able to remove them themselves for swimming and PE lessons.
In the first six weeks children must be able to cover their studs with plasters (brought from home) for swimming and PE lessons.
It’s best to have piercing done in the Summer Holidays.
