PE Kit must be stored in a drawstring bag and kept in school at all times, as activities and lessons are sometimes arranged at short notice, particularly in order to take advantage of good weather.

Cold Weather Clothing

Please provide adequate clothing for playing outside in cold weather.  This is particularly important if your children arrive by car. Please bear in mind that although hats and gloves may seem unnecessary for a car journey, they are very welcome on the playground on a cold frosty day. Please remember that Spring mornings can be cold and coats may still be needed for morning break even if it is forecast to warm up later in the day.

Children are seldom kept indoors. Please do not send your child to school without a coat unless the weather is sure to be warm all day!


Hair that is shoulder length or below must be tied back, whether on boys or girls.  We do not allow extreme hair styles as they are distracting.  This includes stripes/shapes shaved into hair, Mohicans, spikes, coloured hair etc. gel and similar products are not permitted.


No make-up is to be worn to school, including nail varnish.  Your child will be asked to remove any make-up worn.


No jewellery may be worn to school, other than a plain watch, which must be removed for PE)  We cannot take responsibility for watches (or other jewellery) lost.

For the first six weeks after ears are pierced, earrings should be covered with plasters or tape.  Earrings may only be worn after this period providing they are studs. No loops or drop earrings allowed.  The beginning of the Summer holiday is the best time to get ears pierced.
