Black pumps

For indoor PE:

White t-shirt

Royal blue shorts

Tracksuit/sweatshirt/jogging pants

Trainers (optional)

For health and safety reasons, all children with long hair should have it tied back for PE.

The school will provide a separate PE kit for pupils when participating in school sports events.

Swimming kit

On the designated swimming day, all children need to bring a bag containing an item of swimming clothing (see below) and a towel.

Long hair (boys and girls) should be tied up in a bun (a ponytail is not acceptable) or a swimming cap must be worn. This is for the safety of all pupils.

Boys and girls should bring their own swimming cap, if required, and they may use their own goggles.

All items brought from home should be clearly labelled with the child's name.

Armbands are provided by the school.

Girls should wear one-piece swimming costumes (no bikinis or tankinis).

Boys should wear trunks or short swimming shorts (no Bermuda style or Surfer style shorts).

Children may wear full body suits for religious beliefs or for a pre-existing medical condition.

Jewellery should not be worn – the only exception is the wearing of jewellery for religious beliefs.

If children have pierced ears they must be able to remove their own earrings – this is for the safety of all pupils. Children cannot swim if they are unable to remove their own earrings.

If your child has a verruca then they must provide their own verruca sock as the virus can easily spread in a swimming pool environment. Children cannot swim if they have a verruca and do not have a verruca sock.

Hair, jewellery and accessories

Children are not allowed to wear jewellery but may wear simple watches (no smart watches). Pierced earrings should be limited to studs (one in each ear). Pupils wearing watches and studs are responsible for them. Pupils are expected to remove their own studs for swimming and replace them afterwards and cover them with plasters (brought from home) for PE.

Simple hair accessories (e.g. hairbands, clips) may be worn but must be an appropriate size. Pupils wearing excessive hair accessories will be asked to remove them until the end of the day.

Our school is lovely because people are kind
