Bulk orders are sent every half term, but we are always happy to place ‘one off’ orders if required.
Remember to clearly mark all clothing and personal property with your child’s name.
On the day your child has PE, they should come to school in their PE kit. This minimises time spent getting changed, and maximises learning time.
Reception/Nursery - Friday
Year 1 - Friday
Year 2 - Thursday
Year 3 - Monday and Wednesday
Year 4 - Friday
Year 5 - Tuesday
Year 6 - Wednesday (until half term)
Our PE kit includes:
- Black tracksuit bottoms (no logos)
- Black jumper/hoody (no logos)
- White or red t-shirt – planner currently says ‘or a polo shirt’ – however we would like to phase this out as we want to distinguish between normal, and PE uniform. We have a lot of red t-shirts from when we gave all children PE kit pre covid, so we will redistribute these – please don’t buy a red one yet.
- Plain black shorts (when warmer) – or under tracksuit bottoms as some activities such as gymnastics don’t suit tracksuit bottoms.
- Sturdy black trainers (no logos). (Depending on what children are doing week to week, they may have bare feet for PE)
Please note that for safety reasons we ask all children with long hair to tie their hair back during P.E. and games lessons and when using some specialist equipment in science, art, food technology etc. Hair should be neat and tidy, hair gel should not be used and any hair accessories such as clips, slides, beads etc should be kept to a minimum.
Jewellery and make up (including nail varnish) should not be worn in school. Earrings are not allowed, except for children with pierced ears, who may wear studs on those days when they do not have swimming or P.E. On swimming and P.E. days studs should not be worn. The only exception to this rule is if a child’s ears have very recently been pierced, in which case they may wear their studs provided they have been covered with tape (by a parent) before coming to school. Once the lesson is over the child may remove the tape.
Children may wear an ordinary watch when they are able to tell the time but responsibility for its safe keeping belongs to them, and the school will not be held responsible for any losses.
Nursery and Reception can bring a bag with spare clothes.
All children from Reception Class through to Year 5 should have a bookbag, that they bring to school every day. These can be purchased from the office at a cost of £6.75. Children from year 1-5 should not be bringing any other kind of bag to school.
Year 6 pupils are allowed to bring a backpack/rucksack if they wish to, otherwise, they should bring a school bookbag.
For anyone entitled to free school meals who are in receipt of certain benefits, there is also a fund in school to help with school uniform costs. If you would like to know more about this, ask at the school office.
