PE

As part of our COVID 19 risk assessment measures we are asking that children do not get changed for PE in school. This will mean coming to school in their PE clothes. Weather permitting we will be encouraging outdoor PE sessions. Children should wear plain, dark joggers/ track suit bottoms for outdoor PE lessons.

Our PE kit is:

Black Shorts

Black Pumps

White T-Shirt


For swimming lessons, children should bring a swimming costume/ trunks. Children should not wear swim shorts.

School Lunches

Children can either bring a packed lunch or can have a school dinner. School meals are charged at £2.10 per day.

Q: What will happen if my child or another child in class develops symptoms of COVID 19 in school?

A: If staff notice a child displaying symptoms of COVID-19:

The usual method of contacting parents will be immediately followed.

The child will be removed from class and isolated behind a closed door in the medical room.

Any staff accompanying the child will wear full PPE.

Children must be collected promptly by one adult, to minimise the risk of spreading the virus.

Parents/carers must book and attend a test for their child. The result of this must be communicated to school. The child may not attend school while awaiting results.
