Indoor Sports

Indoor Sports

A red polo shirt and red or black shorts or trouser should be worn for indoor PE. Black Pumps should be worn for indoor PE, some activities may require bare feet. Please inform the school if your child is suffering from any type of foot infection then he/she may be excluded from barefoot work.

Outdoor Sports

Outdoor Sports

Pupils should wear trainers for outdoor sessions. In cold weather the children should wear a complete change of outfit – plain navy/black tracksuits only please. PE kits should be brought in on a Monday and left in school until Friday.



All learners should change their clothes for PE in line with health and safety guidance.


All earrings must be removed, if learners can’t remove these themselves please remove them at home before school. It is not safe for learners to do PE activities with earrings taped over; they must be removed. If you are considering having your child’s ears pierced please try to arrange this for the beginning of the summer break so that they are able to have their earrings removed in time for September.


For indoor PE sessions learners should wear dark navy or black shorts and a red polo shirt – with or without the school logo. Pumps should be worn for most indoor sessions although some may require bare feet. Trainers or pumps can be worn for outside sessions. In winter months a tracksuit top and tracksuit bottoms may be worn in addition to the polo shirt.



Learners in Year 5 receive a weekly swimming lesson. Girls must wear one piece swimming costumes and boys swimming shorts with a liner which don’t come below their knees. Long hair must be tied back and earrings must be removed. A £1 coin must be sent into school at the start of year 5 for lockers. We will keep this to use each week during the year.


Jewellery/Watches/Make up


Jewellery should not be worn as it is not school uniform and may get lost or broken. A learner who has pierced ears may wear studded earrings only, and learners may wear wrist watches (no smartwatches), but school cannot accept responsibility should they be lost or damaged. Make up should not be worn by learners and this includes nail varnish.


Mobile Phones and Smart technology

Children are not allowed to bring mobile phones into school unless this has been agreed with the class teacher or a member of the SLT.  Where this has been agreed, it is the expectation that the child hands their phone to their teacher on entry to class to be kept securely until the end of the day.

Phones should not be used in the school grounds for safeguarding reasons and should be switched off as children enter the school gates.

We do not allow children to wear any form of smartwatch. They are not needed in school and are often a distraction for children. A simple mechanical non-smart wristwatch is allowed.

Mobile phones or Smart Watches, where brought into school, will be the sole responsibility of the child concerned and the school will accept no responsibility for any subsequent damage or loss.
