PE day will be Thursdays. There WILL be PE the week beginning 21st September.

On a PE day, children will need to come to school already changed into their PE kit.  They will need to wear their PE  t-shirt (which should be the colour of the house group they are in), PE shorts, normal school jumper or cardigan and their normal school shoes. Please do not send them to school in their trainers or plimsolls. As the weather gets colder, they will need to come to school on PE days in their track suit bottoms, PE t-shirt, school jumper or cardigan and school shoes.

Please remove any earrings before coming to school on a PE day as we can't remove them and your child will not be allowed to do PE if wearing earrings. Thank you.
