School caps are encouraged to be worn on the playground during the summer months.

School bags and coats should have the child’s name in and be of a type that can be stored on the child’s peg.

Long hair should be tied back at all times – no extremes of hair style or ‘patterns’ cut into hair. Make up and nail varnish is not allowed.


Any earrings MUST be studs and will need to be removed for PE lessons or sports based activities, this is due to health & safety reasons.

P.E. bags should be the drawstring type and be named.They can remain in school all week and be taken home at weekends for washing 
No jewellery, including watches, is allowed at all during P.E. sessions. If a child cannot remove earrings by themselves, will be given an appropriate role within the lesson, ie, coach. Any child missing a P.E. lesson due to a medical condition will be expected to bring a note from the parent explaining the reason. 
Aerosol deodorants are not allowed as they trigger some asthmatics. Roll on and stick types are suitable alternatives. 


NEW ITEM - we now have stock of winter hats - £4 each, available from the school office.

Swimming Kits 

Children going swimming must bring their kit in a separate bag. 
They need a towel and either trunks or a full costume. Bikinis and long swimming shorts are not allowed. 
It is a good idea for those with long hair to wear a swimming cap.
