This term PE will be on a Monday. 

All children must have their full PE kit on for these lessons. Children can come to school on Mondays in their PE kit. Children with hair longer than their collar need to tie it up and children with earrings need to tape them or take them out.


Important information:

If your child is going home with someone other than a parent then please ensure you have written a note or spoken to someone in the office. Due to safeguarding we must have permission before allowing your child to go home with someone else.

- Children need to have a named drinks bottle in school every day. If the bottle has water in they are allowed to bring it into the classroom.

Unless the weather is unsafe to go out at playtime then your child will play outside so please ensure that you send in a named coat everyday.
