School Bags

Outdoor Shoes 

  • To make the most of our fantastic grounds, we ask pupils bring in a pair of wellington boots (infants) or wellies or waterproof trainers (juniors) for playtimes. This allows grassy areas to be played on all year round and prevent the indoors becoming muddy. These are worn for playtime and lunchtime each day throughout the autumn and spring terms.  
  • Infants are required to bring wellies due to other curriculum opportunities, namely welly walks and Forest School activities 


  • Your child should have a named, old, oversized, long sleeved shirt for messy art lessons. This will be stored in their PE bag. 


  • Hair that is shoulder length or longer needs to be secured and tied back with a small hair band, an alice band can be worn in addition. Small hair bands and slides should be navy, grey, black or white. 
  • Hair dye or inappropriate styles are not allowed. 


  • Items of jewellery are unsuitable for primary school pupils to wear during the school day. Rings, necklaces, bracelets (including festival bands), brooches and earrings should be left at home. 
  • For pupils with pierced ears, only studs should be worn.  
  • Any other piercing (eg: nose and eyebrow, is not permitted) 
  • No nail varnish allowed 

Labelling all personal property 

  • All clothing should be clearly labelled. Scarves, gloves, shoes, undergarments and school sweatshirts tend to be most often misplaced. 

Lost Property 

  • Lost property is stored on pegs by the blue doors or in the cloakroom. Items will be disposed of each half term if left unclaimed.
