We are proud of our uniform and encourage all children to wear it from Reception class onwards. The uniform helps the children to feel part of our school community. In foundation stage children are learning to be independent with their clothes and dress themselves. All school clothes should be washable.
The uniform is as follows:
Children have two P.E. lessons each week - one in the hall for gym or dance and one outside for games. They need to keep their P.E. clothes in a bag at school to change into.
For indoor P.E. lessons
For outside P.E. lessons
P.E. bags and plimsolls can be purchased at the school office. The P.E. bags will be sent home regularly to be washed.
It is important that the clothes are EASY for children to manage themselves so avoid buying clothes with lots of buttons or difficult trouser fastenings. It is essential all school clothes are LABELLED with your child's name as they can get mislaid at school. Teachers can help find lost items if names are on them. Check regularly the names are still on as after a few washes the name can fade and then be difficult to identify. Permanent marker pens or iron on /stitch name labels are advisable. Also label children's coats, jackets, hats scarves and gloves. The children are roughly the same size so again clothes can get muddled up or lost.
It is advisable to have more than one set of uniform as young children seem to attract dirt or paint!
