A good standard of dress is encouraged at all times and is essential when a child is representing the school at various trips and outings.

Free School Uniform Service

P.E. Games and Swimming

All children are expected to change fully into the correct clothing for P.E., games and swimming as these lessons are part of the national curriculum and it is therefore essential that ALL children take part.

For P.E. and Games

Each pupil will require a pair of plimsolls or trainers, a plain T-shirt and black shorts.

For Outdoor Games in Winter

It is advisable to have either a tracksuit or an old jumper.

For Swimming

All children will require a costume/trunks, towel and swimming hat in a waterproof bag. Hats are available from the school office. (Trunks must be tight fitting and no longer than your child’s knees. Boys with long hair will also require a swimming hat)

IMPORTANT – Please make sure that ALL items of clothing are clearly marked/labelled with the child’s name.

Jewellery and earrings

All jewellery needs to be removed for PE – this includes swimming. Taping for any reason is not allowed under the Essex County Council Health and Safety Policy. On PE days, please come to school without earrings in. If earrings cannot be removed, your child won’t be able to participate. With this in mind, if you intend to have your child’s ears pierced, we recommend you do this at the start of the summer holidays, allowing time for them to heal and for the earrings to be safely removed without closing.   Bracelets and necklaces should not be worn, but children may wear a watch if they wish to.
