PE - Spring Term

Each class will have at least one outdoor PE lesson a week or one indoor. Please help the children to have their correct kit (all named) on the correct days: Tuesday (indoor or outdoor or both) and Thursday (swimming). As the weather turns colder, we will encourage them to bring tracksuit bottoms for warmth (blue or black – no hoodies please). Children will need to bring swimming costumes, hat, googles (if needed) and a towel each week on a Thursday.


On a Friday the whole school will be involved in Fit Friday, for this they will need outdoor PE kits. 

Children should not wear jewellery/ wristbands in school. They may wear ‘studs’ if they have their pierced ears, however for health and safety, these MUST be removed on PE days prior to coming into school. If your child has only just had their ears pierced, please supply a roll of micro-pore tape which can then be applied over the earrings.

May we also remind you that long hair needs to be fastened back for school.


Dropping off / Collecting your child

Dropping off - Please ensure your child arrives on time each morning. Children can come straight into class from 8.40am. Your child must be in class in time for the register at 8:55. If your child arrives after 8:55 please make sure they come in through the office, where they need to sign in as late.

At the end of the school day, please wait on the playground at the year 6 mobiles. Your child will be led out and expected to wait with their class teacher. If they are to be collected by someone else, please inform the class teacher. Any children who have still not been collected by 3.25pm they will be taken to the front entrance to await collection. Please note this is something we offer to keep children safe and should not be abused.

If your child is going home with a friend, or different adult, please inform us in the Homework Diary. If no note is provided, your child will be taken to the office in order to contact you. This is school policy and ensures your child’s safety.
