On top of this, we ask that children are dressed appropriately for the weather. This means coats, hats and gloves when it is cold; sun hats when hot and sunny. Please do not assume that children will be kept in if the weather is drizzly or cold. Children need exercise every day and whenever possible we will take them outside for playtimes, whether sunny, drizzly or cold. As they say in Norway – there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing! If children are not dressed properly in school uniform, we will contact parents by text message or a note home. We strongly discourage the use of jewellery and other accessories that are not appropriate for school use (e.g. glitter in hair, hair shaved in patterns, hair dyed in colours outside the range of natural shades, bandanas, makeup, etc). Occasionally we may have fundraising days when these are permitted, but in general they are not allowed. Children's parents will be contacted if these are noticed. School uniform guidelines are issued annually to parents. If you are unable to afford school uniform, please contact the School Business Manager, as you may be eligible to apply for a grant from the Governors’ Fund.
All children must change for PE. PE takes place at least twice a week and all children are expected to bring the correct change of clothing. We do not permit children to participate in games, athletics or gymnastics without changing into their PE kit, for reasons of hygiene and ease of movement. There are often extra PE sessions for one or another reason, and you will be told in good time of the need to provide your child with his/her PE kit.
PE kit consists of a white T-shirt (no logo other than the school badge), a pair of black shorts/joggers and appropriate footwear. This should be trainers for outdoor work (games, athletics), as all indoor work (gymnastics, dance, indoor games) is taught in bare feet. The PE kit should be kept in a drawstring bag, and hung on a peg in the cloakroom area during the week. We would ask that all PE kit is brought in on a Monday, and taken home at the weekend so it can be washed if necessary. In the summer it is particularly important to have PE kit available through the week as teachers may often decide to play an unscheduled game of rounders, do extra athletics practice, etc., for which children will need PE kit. Children may be asked to miss PE if their kit does not conform to the requirements above.
