Other items

School bag should ideally be similar to a back pack and be large enough for children to carry a water bottle and book bag. Some bags are very large and are challenging for children to put onto page in the cloakrooms.

Snack box – named. Children in Key Stage 1 are provided with a fruit snack every day, but should you feel that your child needs an additional snack, then please send this in a named container. Children are encouraged to eat their snacks around a table together and practise techniques of peeling, chopping and cutting their fruit themselves. Any support you can give your child with this before they start school is a huge benefit to them.

Water bottle – a water bottle. Can be purchased through the uniform supplier, although any water bottle is fine as long as they are named. It can be challenging for pupils to identify their own water bottles when some are very similar. Personalising water bottles with stickers is often a good idea. Children can do this with families before they start school with positive discussion so they know what they are looking for on the water bottle table.

Book Bag – a book bag will be provided for you during home visits prior to children starting  Reception.

Outdoor learning

Wellingtons/outdoor boots all children will need a pair of named wellingtons that they should keep at school

Warm coat – a coat should be brought to school every day

Sun hat – for warmer months

Insect repellent – should be applied at home before children come to school and cannot be applied by school staff.


Forest School – weekly Forest School sessions mean that children are outside all year for the whole morning in the rain, sun and weather in between. Children are not out during lightning storms and will be brought quickly back to the main building.  Please dress children appropriately for the climate and changing seasons (gloves, hat and scarf in winter months and sun hats and sun cream in warmer months).

All in one wet weather suit or waterproof trousers over the top of warm tracksuit bottoms in colder/wet months that are worn to school on Forest School days.  School uniform should be brought to school in bags for children to change into on Forest School days upon return to school.
