Our Governing Body believes that all children should attend school neatly and suitably dressed and expect pupils to wear the school colours – royal blue top with grey trousers/skirt. We ask that the children come to school in sensible flat black leather shoes. The infants’ shoes should have either buckle (or Velcro) fastenings. Neither trainers (except for PE Day) nor boots are an acceptable form of footwear for normal classroom activities, and shoes should not have high heels. The advice of the School Medical Officer is that the wearing of high heels will affect the child’s well-being and development.

Please note; we have been asked by the company that parents/guardians do not go to the Liss Sport premises, orders are online or by post and are delivered to school. School does not open your order at school, it arrives sealed and named ready to go home with pupils; please check your order and contact Liss Sport direct for any issues. Exchanges; please contact Liss Sport direct to arrange.
- All pupils can wear their trainers/plimsolls to school on PE day (see newsletter for PE Day).
- All pupils will need to keep a pair of plimsolls in school, in a drawstring bag, in case their other shoes become wet or muddy.
- KS1 will need to keep their plimsolls plus a change of clothes (shorts, socks, pants) in school– in case of accidents.
All belongings must clearly show the owner’s name.
Long hair should be tied back.
Make-up and nail varnish must not be worn in school, nails should be kept short.
For health and safety reasons necklaces, chains and bracelets should not be worn, and only the smallest stud earrings are acceptable. Children must be able to insert and remove these on their own; staff are not allowed to do this.
No jewellery may be worn for P.E. Children who have their ears pierced should do so at the start of the summer break so that studs can be removed by the autumn. If children are unable to remove ear studs, parents must provide tape/plasters in school for pupils to cover their ear jewellery.
Each child needs black plimsolls with suitable T shirt and shorts for Physical Education. PE takes place outside throughout the year so a warmer PE kit including jogging bottoms and a fleece will be needed in the winter.
All children from Year 3 to Year 6 attend swimming sessions during the year. The girls will need one-piece swimming costumes and the boys swimming trunks in addition to their normal P.E. kit. Please note that boys should wear trunks not shorts, again for health and safety reasons. It is expected that children will wear a swimming hat.
Valuables and money
Please do not allow your child to bring valuable possessions into school unless a special arrangement has been made with a member of staff. In the event that money is brought into school for special events it should be carried in an envelope or purse clearly marked with the child’s name. School does not take responsibility for valuable possessions that are lost or damaged.
Pupils will need to bring the following to school, in a bag, for each session: -
- Wellies/strong boots
- Suitable coat for the weather – e.g. waterproof/warm
- Long trousers - suitable for the weather (no shorts)
- Tops with long sleeves
- Sun hat & cream if the weather is warm
Please note: Pupils without appropriate clothing for Forest Schools or PE will not be able to take part; we do not send reminders home for missing kit
