Sun Awareness

School hats are available to buy from the school office in two different styles, a safari hat and a logoed cap Sun tan cream should be applied before school (which will last all day) but in exceptional circumstances, for those children who can not wear all day cream, then a small bottle of roll on sun cream can be kept at school. This should be clearly named.  

Lost Property

Unfortunately items do get lost during the school year. In the case of clothing, if your child's name is clearly marked, we do our best to return the item promptly. There are, however, a great many items which are not marked and which invariably end up in the lost property. We do not have the space to store vast quantities of lost property; it is therefore displayed at regular intervals and then unclaimed items are disposed of at the end of the term. 

Hair

Pupils with long hair should wear it tied back (with plain bands) in school at all times on health and safety grounds. 

Jewellery and Personal items

Except for inexpensive watches and small stud earrings, children should not wear jewellery to school, other than items of religious significance (a letter to this effect should be sent to the Headteacher). NB earrings should not be worn on PE days. The school accepts no responsibility for the loss of, or damage to, items worn or brought into school. The child will be asked to remove any such items for any activity where the teacher feels it may cause an accident or injury. Hoops and long earrings are not permitted.  Unfortunately items do get lost during the school year. In the case of clothing, if your child's name is clearly marked, we will endeavour to return it. However unnamed items will be disposed of at the end of term.
