Summer wear

  • Sun hats are essential for outdoor PE and for break times.
  • Sun cream should be applied at home – NO sun cream should be sent into school.
  • Sunglasses may only be worn if there is a genuine medical reason in which case please write to the Headteacher.

 

Personal Property

Money  - Young children are experts at losing money, so please ensure that all money sent to school is in a sealed envelope clearly marked with the name of the child, the class and the purpose for which it is intended.

Pens and Pencils - Pencils, pens etc are provided for the children's use - pencil cases are not needed.

Jewellery - For safety reasons, only stud earrings may be worn by children with pierced ears.  No other jewellery should be worn at school.  Jewellery must not be worn in PE.  Spectacles can be worn during PE with written parental consent.

Lost property - Unmarked lost property is kept in a container in the entrance foyer.  Children may look there for anything they have lost.  The container is emptied at the end of each term and any remaining items are disposed of.

School Bags - Large backpacks are a safety hazard in our limited cloakroom areas.  Please bear this in mind if your child needs to bring a bag to school.  Lightweight rucksacks are recommended and we have some  available from the school office.

Sweatshirts, PE T-shirts/shorts, and PE bags are available to purchase from school or via ParentMail.
