Following Health and Safety guidelines, earrings are no longer permitted in school.

Personal Equipment

  • The cloakrooms in school are very small and cramped.
  • Reading books and homework should be kept in a special reading folder, which is available from school. During the day this will be stored in class.
  • Most children should not usually need to bring another bag to school with them, but if this is unavoidable it should be a small carrier bag which can fit easily on a coat peg.
