P. E. Equipment

Each child requires either a school or plain white T-shirt, black or blue shorts, and either plimsolls or trainers to be kept in a named P.E. bag. These need to be in school everyday. During cold weather, children should bring tracksuits or some other similar form of warm clothing to wear over their kit if they wish to. Gymnastics and dance activities take place in bare feet in accordance with LA guidelines.

Swimming

The present policy is that all pupils from Year 2 should attend swimming lessons at Long Stratton High School pool during the year. The present policy is as follows:
Autumn Term – Class 4 – first half of term; Class 5 – second half of term
Summer Term – Class 3 – pupils second half of term

All swimmers must bring a towel and hat in addition to their costume or trunks.

Earrings, Jewellery & Makeup

In the interest of safety, the only jewellery allowed at school are ear studs, and these and any watches must be removed for P.E. lessons.
Earrings are not allowed to be worn for PE, including swimming, and must be removed before coming to school unless your child is able to remove them independently. Please do not arrange for your child to have their ears pierced during the school year. The start of the summer holidays is an ideal time for this.

Jewellery, such as rings and necklaces, are not permitted and makeup of any kind is deemed inappropriate.

Art & Craft

Protective clothing is needed for art/craft lessons. An old shirt/blouse worn back to front is most appropriate. Please ensure your child has some form of painting shirt in school.

Naming Clothing & Personal Property

It is important that all items of clothing and personal property are named. This includes lunchboxes, bags and all clothes.
