Whilst on the subject of clothing please try and ensure your child’s name is clearly marked on all their clothing to avoid loss and ease of identification. We endeavour to return all named clothing promptly from the ‘Lost Property’ box. It is the responsibility of the pupils to look after their own clothing.


P.E. Kits

PE Kit is also compulsory for sporting lessons and this must be a change of clothes. Your child’s class teacher will let you know on which days of the week it is required although it may be left on the child’s peg/locker, in an appropriate bag, for a week/half term. It consists of:

Indoor – Strictly black shorts, light blue T shirt with names in and plimsolls!!

Outdoor – Shorts or joggers, T shirt and tracksuit top plus trainers. In Years 5 & 6 a pair of football boots would be useful for those wishing to play.

Swimming - Appropriate swimming costume (not loose shorts) and towel in a waterproof bag (plus hair brush/comb).

Please note NO Football Shirts etc. to be used for PE – only school agreed kit. As the children will be doing gymnastics in bare feet please ensure any veruccas have been sealed with Bazuka gel or an equivalent.

Failure to bring correct kit will result in less than green ratings on your child’s report and a reminder letter will be sent home as appropriate.
