Sensible black shoes without heels – no training shoes or logos.

Summer – plain flat sandals with a back support may be worn – white, black or red.

Winter - Wellingtons or plain boots may be worn but should be changed to indoor shoes.


Art

An ‘overall’ for ‘messy’ activities e.g. an old shirt etc is also required.


PE Kit

For indoor – Gym shoes/sandshoes, shorts and red t-shirt.

For outdoor – Shorts, sandshoes, training shoes or football boots, tracksuit.

For year 4 and top up Swimming – Towel, swimming costume and cap (if children have long hair), waterproof bag.


It should be noted that PE is part of the National Curriculum and children can only be permitted to miss a lesson on medical grounds upon receipt of a note from parents. 



Bags

Because cloakroom space is limited, each child will need a soft drawstring bag in which to keep PE equipment, these are available for purchase from our uniform providers.

Your child also needs a simple hand held book bag which fits in their classroom tray. We find the extra wide book bags with the long strap often trip the children over therefore request our suppliers do not stock / provide them. 


School sweatshirts, cardigans, polo shirts and T-shirts are all available to purchase from our uniform suppliers.

Please note skirts, trousers and pinafores should be GREY


Pupils require a change of footwear for indoors when the weather is wet and wellingtons are being worn to school. Wellingtons should always be clearly named and please send a peg to enable the pair to be clipped together. 


We also hope that your child can dress and undress themselves as this saves us all so much time in school. If your child has laces in any shoes, please ensure that they can tie them.


It is important that all possessions are clearly marked with your child's name for easy identification.



Uniform Suppliers

To ensure we offer best value to our parents we have negotiated with two uniform suppliers who stock uniform and bags with our school logo on.  One is local based in Thompson Street and one is online for home or school delivery.
