We encourage children from Reception and Key Stage One to use book bags to transport books, homework and personal items between school and home. These are provided by the PTSA. Teachers are able to store these in classrooms and are able to support the children to increase their independence with organising their home / school equipment.
In Key Stage Two, the children may bring their belongings in their own backpack but this should be clearly named.
- Pupils must use an appropriately sized waterproof bag to carry their books and It should hold children’s books and reading diaries comfortably without causing any damage.
- The school encourages pupils to bring non-valuable bags. The school will not be liable for lost or damaged school bags.
- Children should not bring in their own pencil cases
- Water Bottle – all children should bring a water bottle into school every day: this can be refilled by children whenever necessary during the day. Water bottles must be labelled with the pupil’s name.
- Hairstyles should be smart and moderate in Brightly or un-natural coloured hair is not permitted.
- Pupils with what could be deemed extreme hairstyles may be exempt from the rule above on racial or religious grounds. The Head Teacher will take each individual pupil’s scenario into consideration.
- Long hair should be tied This is to avoid health and safety risks and ensure that children’s vision is not impeded.
- Large, excessive hair accessories should not be worn; however, small hair clips or plain headbands are acceptable. e.g. a pupil may be permitted to cover their hair if they have hair loss / illness etc.
- False nails and nail extensions are not permitted.
