PE kit for Year 1 to Year 6

Children in Years 1 to 6 will continue to attend school in their PE kit on PE days.  PE days will be communicated to parents/carers in September.

One great advantage to this is that it saves time with changing and allows us more time actually doing PE!  It also makes it easier to ensure pupils have their correct kit as they arrive and to notify parents if they have forgotten that it is their PE day, or if they have incorrect kit.

  • Normal school polo shirt with normal school sweatshirt;
  • Plain black tracksuit bottoms (NO logos or coloured stripes etc.);
  • Plain black PE shorts in summer (Please note: skorts and leggings are not suitable for PE);
  • White trainer socks;
  • Plain black trainers (velcro unless your child can independently tie their own laces).

Swimming 

Currently, our Year 4 pupils swim at Riverside Leisure Centre.  Parents and carers will be notified about swimming lessons by letter in advance of the first lesson.  Swimmers will require a sensible costume or trunks and a towel.

Other items

Infant children will require a school book bag to carry their reading book, homework and any other correspondence to and from school.  Junior children will require a suitable bag for carrying their equipment.  All items should be clearly named.
