When children start at our school they are provided with a book bag to carry reading books, their personal organiser and any letters to and from school. We encourage the children to bring a water bottle from home so they can drink water throughout the day.

Our School Uniform

Our school uniform is:

  • Red or White polo shirt
  • Red sweatshirt/ jumper/ fleece/ cardigan
  • Grey or Black trouser/ skirt/ pinafore/ shorts
  • Red and White checked dress
  • Sensible, comfortable footwear should be worn in school at all times to maintain standards of health and safety.

Our P.E. kit
