Children have allocated PE and forest school sessions each week. We are asking children to come into school, on PE and forest school days, wearing clothes suitable for physical activity and movement.
Appropriate clothes for PE and forest school sessions are:
- Dark joggers or leggings (no jeans or dresses)
- Plain t-shirts
- Trainers (no boots or sandals)
Swimming takes places in Year 3, Year 5 and Year 6, children will need appropriate swimwear for these sessions.
School team players may need additional equipment such as football boots.
Jewellery, Make-Up and Hair
No jewellery is to be worn to school. The only exceptions to this are a wrist watch and the wearing of ear studs. Such items must be removed for practical lessons. In the event of a recent piercing, a plaster supplied from home must be applied. School accepts no responsibility at any time for these items.
The following items are also not allowed to be worn in school:
- False nails
We expect children to dress in a way that does not distract themselves or others from their learning. Brightly coloured hair, temporary tattoos, nail varnish etc should not be worn as normal practice and, if we are concerned, we will contact parents to discuss this.
The school accepts no responsibility for the loss or damage to clothing or personal effects.
As neither the Authority nor the school has an insurance provision for loss or damage to clothing or personal effects, parents should consider insurance cover through their own insurers. Valuable items like expensive watches, jewellery and electronic equipment etc. should not be sent to school. Mobile phones brought into school must be dropped into the school office during lesson time.
