A uniform helps to develop a sense of belonging to the school and prevents competition and additional cost to parents / carers. We have found that wearing school colours supports us in maintaining our high standards of behaviour. The Department for Education strongly encourages schools to have a uniform. Your support in wearing our uniform is much appreciated.

What to wear for PE.

Plimpsolls for indoor PE
Trainers for outdoor games

All PE kits need to be kept in a draw string bag on your child's peg in the corridor outside their classroom.
Please make sure that PE kit is in school for the week, as sometimes our PE session timings may vary.

We encourage children to keep themselves hydrated; school water bottles are available for £1 – any plastic water bottle (with a non-spill cap), labelled, may also be used; please ensure that they are regularly cleaned or replaced.
Long hair should be tied back (this is so that it does not distract from learning, for hygiene reasons and safety reasons in PE).
Jewellery and Make-up
Items that are absolutely required by a religion are allowed.
Other jewellery is limited to a watch and plain stud earrings. No earrings are to be worn for PE or swimming. No make-up including nail varnish is allowed.
Every week, we gather lots of lost property – please help us to reduce this amount.
