Baseball caps and woolly hats are also available, both in royal blue with the school logo as are school fleeces in royal blue and bearing the School logo and reversible waterproof jackets.
All children are expected to wear navy or royal blue shorts and plain white T-shirts for P.E. The children are required to work bare footed in certain lessons, but white or black plimsolls are required as they will also be necessary on occasions. All children will need trainers and a plain royal or navy blue tracksuit for outdoor games lessons. The children will require a draw-string bag for their P.E. kit.
P.E Hoodies are also available to order from Julie at Kool Kids.
For swimming lessons children will require swimwear and a towel.
All children's clothing should be clearly named so that it can be returned to the correct pupil if lost!

Smart Devices and GDPR - Smart Watches / Fit Bits / Phones are not permitted in school and cannot be worn as part of school uniform. Your child will be asked to put this in their tray if they are wearing them.
P.E - Earrings
The advice is as follows:
National guidance on personal effects is given in ‘safe practice in physical education and school sport’, published by the association for physical education (afPE). Website: www.afpe.org.uk.
Personal effects (e.g. jewellery, religious adornments, watches, hair slides, belts, spectacles, hearing aids) constitute a hazard if worn while participating in physical activity and should be removed beforehand. Taping over ear studs is not recommended as a solution.
Earrings cannot be made safe if the child doesn't remove them so they cannot take part in the activity e.g. P.E or go swimming with them in. The Local Authority sought clarity with insurance about this and this is what has been agreed by them.
Moving forwards, it is preferable for earrings not to be worn in school (ideally, they should be worn outside of school e.g. weekends).
If earrings are worn, they must be flat to the earlobe.
Earrings will not be permitted for P.E or swimming.
If the child does wear earrings on these days and cannot remove them independently in school, they will have to be involved in the lesson in ways that avoid direct physical participation (e.g. act as referee, scorer, analyst or use other equipment, etc.). If this cannot be achieved they will not take part at all.
Children will not be permitted to join in the swimming lesson.
