Lockdown 2021

We want to thank all our families at this difficult time.  Those working on frontline jobs and protecting the health and well-being of our community, thank you for your service for us all.  We are pleased to be able to support your children in school.  For those at home thank you so much for the enormous efforts you are putting into the home learning and the support you are giving your children.  We can see that they are engaging so well and producing some super work.  I want also to thank all the staff who are working tirelessly to keep all the plates spinning in school.
If you need any additional support or advice, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
Please take care and keep safe.

Mapac can supply all the items of clothing listed below:

School Uniform
Although there is no compulsion for parents of primary school children to purchase a school uniform, it is hoped that parents will send their children in uniform. We feel that uniform enhances the children’s feelings of belonging to and identifying with the school.
It is also cheaper to dress children in uniform than to allow them to dress in their own choice of clothes. Uniform also prevents competition between children about the clothes worn.
The uniform includes a wide range of items which cater for all budgets and tastes and can be bought through Mapac, our school uniform supplier, or from many high street shops or supermarkets.

Girls’ Uniform

Winter
Grey skirt, pinafore or trousers
Green sweatshirt, cardigan or jumper
White or green polo shirt or blouse

Summer
As above or green and white gingham, or similar, dress

Boys’ Uniform

Winter
Grey trousers
Green sweatshirt or jumper
Green or white polo shirt

Summer
As above or shorts, if preferred. No jeans, please.

General Uniform

Hats
Baseball hats with the school logo are available. It is advisable for all children to have a hat in school during the warmer, sunny weather to wear when outdoors.

Footwear
Children require a sensible pair of shoes or trainers for playtime and a pair of indoor shoes (often plimsolls).

P.E. Clothes
An essential part of a child’s education is the provision of opportunities for good physical development. To take part in apparatus work, movement, dance and games the children should change into P.E. clothing.
Children need plain black shorts, white or school T-shirt and suitable plimsolls. Depending on the weather, older children will also need a tracksuit and trainers for outdoor games lessons.

Swimming
During the second half of the summer term, a swimming costume or trunks and towel will be needed by all children from Year 1 upwards when they go swimming in our own pool.
