Bookbags:

All children in FS2 and KS1 will need a Dalestorth book bag to keep their school reading book and diary in. One keyring may be attached.

 

We do not allow any Fortnite merchandise (hats, rucksacks, bags, lunchboxes etc.) in school.

 

PE, Games, Swimming

For PE the children require a change of clothing.  It is not considered healthy or hygienic for pupils to undertake physical activity in the same clothing that they wear for general school work.

 

Indoor

Plain White T-shirt/top and plain black/blue shorts.

Footwear:      Plimsolls or bare feet.

No skorts as these could get caught on apparatus.

 

Outdoor Games

Black/blue tracksuit top and trousers with no logos. Trainers for outdoor lessons.

 

A drawstring bag/rucksack to keep kit in helps to prevent loss. Please ensure everything is labelled with the child's name.

 

Swimming

Children swim in key stage 2. They will need suitable swimming trunks for boys and a one-piece swimming costume for girls, together with a towel and bag. We follow Notts County Council health and safety guidelines during school swimming lessons which specifies that girls are not permitted to wear two-piece costumes and that boys are not allowed to wear swimshorts / beachwear. More details will be given when needed.

 

Specific safety considerations

Hair

Long hair should be tied back for all activities at school.  This is important as regards hygiene, restricting the spread of 'little visitors.'

 

Inappropriate hair styling and make-up are not part of our school uniform and will be challenged.

 

Jewellery

We dissuade children from wearing jewellery. If earrings are worn, they must be the simple stud type only.  No other jewellery should be worn with the exception of a sensible watch. All jewellery has to be removed for swimming and physical activities.

 

Name labels

All clothing, particularly royal blue tops should be labelled clearly with the child’s name.  It is a parent's responsibility to ensure all items of clothing are named.  Without this, it is extremely difficult for staff to return any misplaced clothing to the correct child.
