PE is currently on a Monday and swimming is on a Thursday. Please ensure your child comes to school on each of these days dressed in their PE kit/swimming kit under their clothes. As we will be doing PE outside, tracksuit bottoms and trainers are recommended, especially for the cold weather months. Please ensure earrings are removed/ taped before school on these days and long hair tied back.



Please ensure your child has a name labelled water bottle in school every day for break and lunch times. An additional drink such as squash can be brought in for lunchtime only in their lunchbox.

Your child is welcome to bring their own healthy snack, such as a banana or grapes, for morning break.
