What to bring to school daily

  • Water bottle with fresh water only

This will be available to them throughout the day and will be refilled by staff if needed.  Parents & carers will be able to monitor how much water intake their child has had as we will send bottles home daily for washing and refilling.  

  • Book Bag

Book bags containing their reading book should be brought to school daily as your child will read their book every day.  

  • Outdoor Coat

Any coat/jacket suitable for the weather.  School coats/fleeces may be purchased (optional) from the uniform stockist.



Swimming sessions in Summer Term 2023 remain on a TUESDAY.  Children need to bring:

  • a swimsuit/trunks (no bikinis)
  • a swim hat (available from School Office)
  • a towel 

Swimming kits should be brought in a bag.  School swim bags can be bought from the school office.  Children should wear their PE kit on swimming days to enable them to change more easily.
