Uniform and equipment
Children should attend in comfortable clothing for the current weather. They should also arrive with a spare pair of clothes, indoor shoes (e.g pumps), P.E Kit, water bottle and wellies in a named bag.
Preschool children are not required to wear school uniform; however it may be useful to purchase a school sweatshirt/cardigan.
The most important thing to remember is to provide your child with clothing they can manage easily themselves – this promotes independence and self esteem.
Soft plimsolls for indoors – can be personalised with paint/buttons etc
Wellington boots and/or stout shoes for outdoors – (laces are not usually helpful unless your child can manage to tie them)
A waterproof coat all year round – children play in all weathers and England has frequent summer showers! In winter the coat must be waterproof AND warm.
Winter – hats, gloves, coat
Warm/hot weather – Sunhat, suncream already applied unless your child can apply
WATER BOTTLE – NAMED (containing ONLY water)
Spare set of clothes (for toileting accidents/waterplay/messy play etc) – can be left on peg in drawstring bag (backpacks are too bulky to hang on pegs)
