School Uniform and Equipment
Children are expected to wear a black/grey skirt or trousers, a white shirt, a tie in school colours, a blue jumper or cardigan and sensible black shoes. Please ensure your child’s clothing is clearly labelled with their name in order to prevent loss.
Your child should not attend school wearing make up, nail polish or jewellery (with
the exception of stud earrings and a standard watch).
PE lessons will take place twice a week on Wednesdays and Fridays. In order to provide your child with a full and varied curriculum, these lessons may take place either indoors or outdoors. Therefore, your child will need kit appropriate to all weather types. Please provide your child with plimsoles or trainers, jogging bottoms, shorts, a white or house coloured t shirt and a jumper/sweatshirt. PE kit should stay in school as we may have additional PE lessons throughout the week.
Children with shoulder length hair or longer will be asked to tie their hair up. If your child has earrings, they will be required to remove them themselves for PE.
Your child may also need a waterproof coat, a purse/wallet and a bag to bring their
lunch, home learning activities and reading diaries in. Please do not allow your child
to bring any other items into school.
Children in KS2 will have access to tuck at break times, which is paid for through
