All children must have a change of clothing for PE sessions. Apart from the safety aspect of this we do stress the hygiene importance of changing after exercise as part of our health education policy. Tights must be removed for PE lessons.
The teacher will inform the children as to the most suitable footwear to match the sport.
|For indoor PE||Black shorts and red t-shirt.|
|For outdoor PE||
Black shorts and red t-shirt in fine weather.
Plain track suit in cold weather.
|PE Footwear||Plimsolls, Trainers, football boots (if required), and spare socks.|
Each child should have a small bag to keep his/her kit in. Every item of clothing, footwear or other property must be marked with the child’s name. This is important and parents should make every effort to ensure that their children’s clothing can be easily identified.
We insist that all watches and earrings are removed for physical activities. This is in line with the County Health and Safety Policy on Jewellery. If, for religious reasons, your child has a piece of jewellery which cannot be removed, you will need to make an appointment to meet with Miss Hardy, the R.E. lead to discuss this further.
Children may cover their earrings for physical activities up to six weeks after having their ears pierced. If you would like your child to have their ears pierced, we would strongly encourage you to arrange for this to happen at the beginning of the summer break. If a child needs to have their ears covered, it is the responsibility of parents/carers to provide the tape and for children to apply the tape themselves. Earrings MUST come out for swimming.
Teachers must not remove or replace earrings. They cannot be responsible for the consequences of removing or replacing earrings. Parents cannot transfer this responsibility to teachers.
Due to limited space within the cloakroom areas we ask that the children refrain from bringing in large rucksacks. Instead we highly encourage foldable bags which can be stored in the children’s drawers.
Coats and winter clothing
We require that your child has a waterproof coat with them in school on any day when it may be required. During the winter months please ensure your child has suitable winter accessories to keep them warm when outside e.g. hat, scarf, gloves.
This session focuses on bringing children closer to nature and promoting free, adventurous and exploratory play.
