Your child will be allocated a school 'House' when they enrol at our school. We have 4 Houses, they are Ainslie (Blue), MacArthur (Green), Nelson (Yellow) and Shackleton (Red).
We recommend that you provide an overall or adult’s old shirt for your child to wear for messy art and craft activities.
Reversible Fleece (these can only be purchased from the school office).
Other useful information
All P.E. kit and school uniform should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.
P.E. kit should be kept in a clearly named bag that can be fastened and hung on a peg. We advise that the kit is brought in each Monday and taken home on Friday for washing.
You will be contacted by text if, for any reason, your child fails to have their P.E. kit in school when required. It is very important that all children participate in P.E. lessons whenever possible. If, however, your child has suffered illness or injury, please write a letter to your child’s teacher, to excuse them from P.E. that day.
Children with pierced ears should wear stud earrings only whilst in school. No other jewellery is allowed other than a sensible watch. (NB Children with newly pierced ears are allowed to keep their studs in for P.E. for the first two weeks after piercing, provided the studs are taped over. After that, children should remove their earrings for P.E. Please make sure your child can take out and replace their own earrings; staff are not allowed to do this for them). If they cannot do this by themselves, parents should ensure their child does not wear earrings on days when he/she is doing PE.
Make-up and nail varnish are not allowed in school. Personal property (including jewellery) is brought to school at the owner’s risk and no responsibility for loss or damage will be accepted by the school. All personal property must be named. At the end of each half term named items of lost property are returned to their owners. Unclaimed items are sent to a local charity shop or clothes bank.
