School uniform and clothing
Our uniform consists of:
In the summer term, school ties do not need to be worn and children can wear blue checked summer dresses or grey shorts.
School jumpers and cardigans can be purchased from the school’s uniform provider, Mapac via their website here. Please allow up to 15 working days for delivery. During their busy period, orders for the start of term in September must be made by the 1st August.
Physical Education (P.E.) uniform
There are opportunities for our children to take part of competitive sport alongside other schools; therefore, we would request that parents/carers follow our P.E. uniform policy carefully. From September 2019 for new children, the P.E. uniform consists of:
All of these items and P.E. bags (except for daps) are available to purchase from the school’s uniform provider, Mapac via their website here (from the 1st July 2019). Please allow up to 15 working days for delivery. During their busy period, orders for the start of term in September must be made by the 1st August.
It is important that your child has a complete P.E. kit at school at all times, as without all items they will not be permitted to take part in P.E. lessons.
All uniform and clothing should be clearly labelled with your child’s name. Please make sure that your child knows where their name is written.
Forest School clothing
We have forest school every week on-site; this is an opportunity for the children to learn in an outdoor environment in a multi-sensory way. Forest school will take place in all weather, so the children will need to be dressed appropriately and will require waterproof over-trousers and jacket (any colour), wellies, thick wellie socks, gloves, woolly hat or hood and fleece jumper.
Please make sure all forest school clothing is clearly labelled with your child’s name.
Forest school bags are available to purchase the school office for £4.50.
In order to give a smart appearance whilst wearing uniform we would ask that:
Purchasing school uniform
All school uniform, P.E. uniform, P.E. bags, forest school bags and rucksacks are available to purchase from the school’s uniform provider, Mapac on their website. Parents/carers are also welcome to purchase school branded water bottles, winter hats and sun hats (optional items).
The ‘Daily Mile’
The aim of the ‘Daily Mile’ is to help children improve their physical, emotional and social health and well-being, by doing 5 to 15 minutes of physical activity at least three times per week. It builds fitness, relationships, confidence and resilience.
In order to make this possible and practical, the children will need to wear sturdy footwear. These should not be canvas or have any logo brand visible (i.e. Nike tick). If you have not taught your child to tie laces, velcro shoes/trainers are advisable! Children wearing trainers will not need to buy a separate pair of trainers for P.E.
For those of you who do not wish their children to wear trainers all day: boys will be able to run for these short bursts of activity in their normal sturdy black school shoes and girls will need the supportive Mary-Jane style of shoe with a strap over, or something similar. See examples:
