Shoes must be sensible, low heeled and a dark colour - ideally black. Children who wear high-heeled shoes to school will be asked to change into their P.E. shoes to avoid accidents in the playground.

A scrunchie to tie up long hair is very useful.
Children will need a costume, swimming cap and towel for swimming in the summer.



     For reasons of Health and Safety we follow LA guidelines.
  •   Children may wear a watch.
  •   One ring may be worn.
  •   Only studs or sleepers in ears. These need to be removed by the child for P.E. to prevent accidents
      No other jewellery is permitted unless it is worn for religious or cultural reasons.

A sun hat for hot days and a coat for cool days are a must!
