As of September, children are expected to wear full uniform, including school shoes, except for days that they have a PE lesson (see below). Full details can be found on our website here.
Children are likely to be learning outdoors much more than usual and so will need a warm, showerproof coat.
Classroom windows will be open whatever the weather, so please make sure children have a green sweatshirt or cardigan.
On days when children have PE lessons, they must come into school in their PE kit - this will reduce the need for large bags and extra personal items in school. They should wear black shorts, a white T-shirt, tracksuit trousers, trainers and their school sweatshirt.
Our first priority at the beginning of term is to support children to return to school, PE lessons may not resume for the 1st two weeks. Teachers will be in contact you and let you know when PE days will be.
Whilst our PE lessons will not be running yet, we do want to encourage children to be active and will be doing ‘daily mile’ and other activities. Please send children to school with a pair of plimsolls or trainers that they can keep in school – all other PE kit should stay at home for now.
ALL items of clothing MUST be clearly named.
Your child can bring:
Sun cream/Sun hat if the weather is warm (they will need to be able to apply the suncream themselves as staff will not be allowed to do this - we prefer that you apply suncream at home
Book bag with library / reading scheme / own book
Water bottle (no juice / squash) - preferably in lunch box, book bag or rucksack (to enable “hands-free entry” for sanitising) Water fountains will not be in use so a water bottle is essential.
Snack (KS2 only)
Mobile phone (Year 5 and 6 only, unless agreed by the headteacher)
Small rucksack - they should be able to have their hands free for sanitising as they walk into school. If swimming kit and packed lunch box have shoulder straps, a rucksack will not be necessary, as a book bag can be held over the wrist.
Your child cannot bring:
Games (including swapping cards, etc)
Things to show the teacher / class (please email a photo to the teacher instead)
Their own stationery
