The DPSA (school’s parent association) also runs a nearly new uniform shop where good quality second hand uniform is sold for the benefit of school funds.  Dates of the sales are posted in the school newsletter.

Jewellery, specifically necklaces and bracelets should not be worn to school. However, children are permitted to wear small stud earrings and a watch. We would ask that hair is kept tidy and where long, is tied back. Hair accessories should complement the school uniform in colour and hair styles should be unobtrusive.

P.E. Uniform

P.E. kit needs to be brought in to school at the beginning of term and remains in your child’s classroom until the end of each half term when we send it home for washing and return.

Essex County Council has instructed schools that no jewellery, including earrings, may be worn in any P.E. lesson.  This includes earrings that are covered in tape.

Please ensure that on days when P.E or sports based clubs takes place, your child removes his/her earring(s) before school.  Alternatively if your child is able, they can remove the earrings themselves at school.  We regret that the teachers are unable to replace any child’s earrings after the P.E lesson/sports club.

As with all personal property, the school cannot and does not accept any responsibility for any lost earrings or other jewellery brought into school.

 

Essex County Council advises that it is safer for a child who normally wears glasses to continue to do so for any P.E. activity .If your child wears glasses please discuss this with their class teacher.  In planning P.E. lessons, teachers will take all reasonable steps to minimise the risk of an accident by considering the activity involved and the child’s role. Parents are encouraged to consider their responsibilities by providing glasses which are softer-edged with shatterproof glass and secured firmly to the head.

 

Lost Property

All items of clothing should be clearly labelled.

This helps children identify their own clothes and assists with reuniting lost property. The lost property is kept in a box in the front foyer but it is often the case that items of clothing have been left in their classroom.  It is always worth checking with your child’s teacher if you are missing any items.
