Children need a suitable change of clothing for P.E.

Girls: Leotard (black preferred) or shorts, T Shirt

Outdoor Boys: shorts, T Shirt, trainers/plimsolls

In Winter an additional jumper, tracksuit or jogging suit may be useful but not essential. Football boots or an old pair of shoes will be an advantage for Upper School children when they go to the field. Children should not come to school in tracksuits/jogging suits.

P.E. clothing should be stored in a small named bag.

On P.E. days with young children, try to dress your child in something which is manageable (shirt buttons, particularly in cuffs are difficult.

Ear-rings and ear-studs should be taken out by the child, handed to th eteacher and replaced, by the child after the lesson. If your child is unable to do this then he/she will bring the jewellery home for you to replace. If a child is unable to take out ear-rings/studs, please do so for him/her at home on the morning of the lesson before he/she comes to school.

If you feel it necessary for your child to participate in P.E./Games wearing jewellery, please get in touch with us.  One way around the problem will be for you to provide suitable plasters for covering the ear-rings/studs for the duration of the lesson.

Whilst we will try to recover lost property, the school cannot be held responsible for any missing articles.  All losses should be reported to the child's teacher and any property found by the children should be handed in to the School Reception or Class Teacher.  Please put your child's full name on all clothing, P.E./Games kit, Wellingtons etc.  Occasionally, you may find that your child brings home small items such as bits of jig-saw etc.  Please do not dispose of them but return them to us.  Lost property is kept and can be retrieved at any time.

Year 5 children go swimming weekly and further information is given before these lessons start.

The wearing of jewellery in school is discouraged, for safety and security reasons.  Rings, ear-rings, ear-studs and neck chains must not be worn in P.E.  Such items must be removed and placed in the class security tin kept by the Teacher.

Watches may be worn by Upper School children, but the school accepts no responsibility for them.
