Wrist watches are permitted – but will need to be removed for PE. No other jewellery is permitted in school. Children will be reminded of this as required by staff.


PE Kit

Full labelled indoor and outdoor PE kit is required.  However, in order to maximise learning time and reduce timetable pressure, we ask that - other than in Foundation Stage* - children come to school dressed ready for PE.
