Flat shoes in  plain navy or black.  The School Health Service advises that shoes for children should provide adequate support for the children’s growing feet.  Slip on and fashion shoes are not adequate for school and neither are trainers suitable to wear all day long (except on PE days).

Socks should be plain white or navy

In bad weather Wellingtons or other boots are recommended for outdoor wear.  Please ensure that children have other shoes to wear indoors as boots are not suitable to wear all day,



In light of Covid-19, issues around hygiene and in order to maximise the length of PE lessons, we have decided to allow children to come to school in their PE kits on their designated PE days.  Children will be able to wear their kits all day.  
Acorn Class: Tuesday, 
Willow Class:  Thursday and Friday, 
Beech Class: Monday and Thursday, 
Oak Class: Monday and Tuesday.

Our school PE kit will be as follows:

white t-shirt (preferably with the school emblem but it can be a plain white t-shirt)

Plain unbranded navy shorts / navy joggers

Plain unbranded navy jumper / navy sweatshirt / or logoed hoodie (please see below)

trainers / plimsolls

Hair, Jewellery & Make Up

No jewellery, (except watches) nail varnish or make up should  be worn in school.  If children have pierced ears, only plain studs (not rings) are acceptable and they need to be removed for P.E. or covered with tape. No hair colours should be worn and long hair should be tied back, in the interests of health and safety, using ribbons etc in school colours. Hair styles should not be extreme in appearance nor of an outrageous fashion or design.

All clothing must be clearly named.  Lost property is returned to its owner immediately if it is named.  Any unnamed and unclaimed clothing is taken to local charity shops.
