All children are expected to wear school uniform. This is designed so that children look neat and smart and are comfortable. This can be purchased from Stevensons a uniform supplier based in Reading town centre, there is also a facility to purchase online.
There is a choice of royal blue tops – sweat shirt or a polo shirt and these should be worn with grey/black trousers or a grey/black skirt . Shoes should be sturdy and fastened with straps or laces so that children can use the playground and use stairs safely.
All Physical Education (P. E.) is done in black shorts and green polo shirts. Indoor gym is done in bare feet unless there is a medical problem. Children need pumps or trainers for outdoor games. Children swim at some point in the school year. Children will need a costume and a towel. Children with long hair should wear it tied back and wear a cap. When taking part in P.E., it is dangerous for children to wear jewellery. The teacher will take care of items such as watches. Please make sure that earrings are not worn on P.E. days.
Book & P.E. bags are also available from the supplier.
It is very helpful to name all clothing. It is surprising how many unclaimed items of clothing we have that have no names.
Children are not encouraged to bring personal possessions to school. They can get lost or broken and this upsets children and distracts them from their learning.
