PE Kit

For PE lessons, all children will need the following:

  • Shorts.
  • White t-Shirt.
  • Daps, plimsolls, or pumps.
  • Swimming costume and towel will be required for year 2 and year 5 children.


The wearing of jewellery in school is discouraged for safety reasons. Earrings should only be studs. No bracelets or necklaces should be worn. Children will always be asked to remove any items of jewellery prior to a PE lesson and the school cannot be held responsible for the loss of any items. Children should not have nail polish, false nails, makeup or tattoos.


Children are not allowed to have extreme hairstyles. For example, mohicans, beaded hair extensions, patterns shaved into the hairline, extremes of different lengths (e.g. long top hair with shaved sides or shaved undercuts) dyed hair and highlighted hair. For health and safety reasons hair below shoulder length should be tied back and long fringes clipped back (boys and girls) and be off the face so that eye contact can be made.
