PE – Infant School boys and girls

Royal blue PE Shorts (available from the school uniform supplier)

Black slip-on plimsolls (Velcro please!)

The pale blue polo shirt is worn as part of the everyday uniform AND for P.E.  Hopefully this eliminates the need for lengthy changing times involving shirt/blouse buttons. 

P.E. Kitbags containing slip-on plimsolls and royal blue shorts are kept on your child’s cloakroom peg.  Kitbags will be sent home at the end of each term to allow for washing and checking that plimsolls still fit!  Please check plimsolls regularly.  

Remember, children will be undressing and dressing themselves, so make fastenings as easy as possible to manage.


Other Items

Reading Book Bag (available with school logo from the school uniform supplier)

Drawstring PE Kit Bag (available with school logo from the school uniform supplier)

All children require a P.E. kit bag large enough to hold their clothes, shoes and painting overall

For art and craft – A long sleeved painting overall.  This item is essential – children use it every day

A named water bottle



Optional items

Royal Blue fleece jacket * (available from the school uniform supplier).

Waterproof fleece jacket and windcheater in a bag, sun hat, winter hat and mittens All items of clothing and bags must be clearly marked with your child’s name.  Unnamed lost property is displayed at the end of each term and unclaimed items are donated to charity shops. 


Cloakroom space is very limited.  We ask that children do not bring back-packs or holdalls to school.  The reading book bag is sufficient for carrying daily book needs to school and is stored in the children’s drawers. 


For safety reasons we ask parents to check that jewellery is not worn to school.  Even studs in pierced ears are considered hazardous and may exclude your child from participating in P.E. lessons.

Children with long hair should keep a ponytail tie-back or a supply of rubber bands in their P.E. kitbag. Long hair must be tied back for P.E./Games lessons.

N.B.  During the summer months, when girls are wearing summer dresses, they will need to keep a pale blue polo shirt in their kitbags for P.E. lessons.

Children who wear glasses must have a special safety sports strap in the P.E. bag to be worn for all physical activities.
