Footwear must be appropriate, safe and suitable for the range of activities that children participate in during the school day.

Children are expected to bring a PE kit to school every week. It is advised that they bring them in on a Monday and take them home on a Friday. This allows the children to not only have their PE kit available for PE lessons but it is then readily available for additional activities sessions throughout the week. PE kit consists of a plain white or navy blue t-shirt, dark plain shorts and suitable sporting footwear.

Navy coats, fleeces, book and gym bags are also available. Other uniform items will become available during next year.

The wearing of jewellery is not appropriate in school. Hoop earrings, necklaces and bracelets are not to be worn to school.
If your child has pierced ears then they must wear small, plain stud style earrings.

 

PE Kit


Please ensure that all items of clothing, including PE kit are clearly marked with your child’s name. We would like to request parents’ support in avoiding children’s names being embroidered onto a visible part of the uniform, as this has the potential to raise safeguarding concerns. It is recognised as best practice not to have photos of the children themselves alongside their name whether it is online or face-to-face. This is, on rare occasions difficult to avoid e.g. local press articles; but we would like to take every opportunity to reduce any risk by asking for your full support in this matter. If you feel it is vital to have some way of marking the uniform in a visible area we would request that you please consider using children’s initials.
