We do not have a school uniform, and children are allowed to come to school in clothes of their choice. Clothing and footwear should be both school and season appropriate. Children should not bring high value clothing or jewellery to school.
In Nursery, we ask that children bring in a bag of spare clothes at the start of term, including underwear and socks. When your child first starts, we recommend supplying enough for three changes of clothes. These are in case your child has a toilet accident, or if they get wet or messy whilst playing. Please ensure you put your child’s name on their bag.
Nursery children should also bring appropriate outdoor clothing. We open our garden every day so please dress your child appropriately for the weather. Remember to bring a raincoat if it’s raining! Children should come to school wearing Velcro or slip-on shoes – please do not send your child in wearing shoes with laces if they cannot tie these themselves.
In Reception, we ask that children bring in one change of clothes, just in case. These can be brought in on their first day and left on your child’s peg.
Keep an eye on your the weekly timetables on your child’s Year Group page to see which days they will need to bring in a PE kit. This should include a pair of shorts and/or tracksuit bottoms or leggings, a t-shirt or vest, a sweatshirt or hoodie and suitable footwear. Children with long hair should also have it tied back and no jewellery should be worn (with the exception of stud earrings).
