PE Days: Monday & Friday. Please ensure your child comes in to school on PE days wearing their P.E Kit. School uniform for P.E is a white t-shirt, black or navy-blue shorts and black pumps.  Your child may require something warmer to wear if the weather is colder. Please ensure that all items of kit are clearly labelled with your child’s name.  For health and safety reasons, children cannot wear jewellery for PE, so all children need to either be able to remove their earrings or they should be removed in the morning before school.

Please ensure your child brings a water bottle to school every day.

Please label ALL clothing and belongings.
