Water Bottles


Children are encouraged to bring a clearly named bottle containing waterwhich they will have access to throughout the day.  

The children are expected to take this home everyday and bring it back the following day, clean and refilled. This is particularly important at the moment.





Our PE day is Tuesday 


The children will need to wear the following NAMED PE kit to school on that day: 

a white t-shirt, a pair of dark coloured shorts or jogging bottoms, their school jumper, cardigan or fleece and trainers.

They will also need to have a pair of plimsolls in school (these can be left in school) for lessons taking place in the hall.

For health and safety purposes, ALL jewellery should be removed at home including earrings (or covered up with micropore tape provided from home), and long hair tied up.   

If your child has items that cannot be removed please speak to a member of staff.
