For P.E. every child must have a pair of pumps, shorts (black) and tee shirt (white) in a bag which should remain in school during term-time.  New and expensive items need not be provided as primary age children grow out of things so quickly. Pump/swimming bags can be purchased from school, the present cost is £3.00. They are available in red, blue and claret.



We request that if you are having your child’s ear pierced this is done in the 6 week holidays as earrings are not permitted in PE. Earrings must be plain studs in silver or gold. No hoops, glittery or character earrings are allowed. Watches are permitted but they must not be a distraction to learning. No other jewellery is permitted.

Only book bags are permitted-no rucksacks are allowed as we do not have sufficient storage space in school.


Mobile Phones

Year 6 children who walk to and from home are permitted to bring mobile phones to school but these must be dropped off at the office at registration and picked up at the end of the day.
