It is also essential that the children bring a waterproof coat/jacket, so they will remain dry in the event of wet play.
In colder weather, the need for good ventilation may mean that rooms are cooler. Therefore children should be encouraged to provide layers, which can be added/ taken off as the temperature changes.
In the Summer, sandals may be worn. These should be as plain as possible (not bright colours) and be sturdy and strapped to give support, so that they do not break or slip off when a child is running. Open toed sandals are not permitted. Also during the summer, girls may wear a gingham style dress and boys may wear grey tailored shorts. In KS2, children should change into trainers to play football in the playground. They should change back into school shoes after the break.
When children participate in Physical Education lessons, children must change for all activities. Articles worn indoors must include plimsolls, shorts and a T-shirt. For swimming, a swimming costume and hat are required. Jewellery must be removed before the start of the lesson and head scarves either removed or replaced with a bandana, which will come off easily if it becomes caught. The PE kit should consist of:
