What to bring


Please check your child has a named water bottle, healthy snack (KS2), lunch (either packed or pre-ordered school dinner), and weather-appropriate clothing - this could be sun cream and a hat or... a warm, waterproof coat as we will be outside in all weathers, come rain or shine.

Reading books will continue to be sent home and returned to school via the children.

PE kits to be brought in on Monday (all items named and in a labelled PE bag) and left in school for the week and taken home on Friday.

Please note that we are a NUT-FREE SCHOOL so no nuts or nut products to be brought to school for snack or in packed lunches.

Daily items - please make sure items are named

  • A water bottle - transparent plastic (not single use) and named please
  • Healthy snack in KS2 (fresh fruit/veg is supplied to EYFS and KS1) - School Council has agreed a healthy snack list (see Snack and Lunch for their approved list)
  • Lunch - packed if a school lunch hasn't been pre-ordered (see Snack and Lunch for information on ordering a school lunch)
  • A coat appropriate for the weather (we will be outside, come rain or shine)

Ad-hoc items

  • Show and Tells are as advised by your child's teacher.
