We have active playtimes and it is easy to twist an ankle if the footwear is not appropriate. Open-toe sandals can be dangerous as can high heels. It is best to have a fitted shoe with laces or Velcro fastening. Trainers are not part of school uniform except for outside games lessons. Boots may be worn to and from school in cold weather and at playtimes, but not during the school day.
Children will need their PE kit in school every day in a named draw-string bag. Children need shorts, a t-shirt and pumps which fit. Pumps that are too big or too small are a safety hazard. Trainers are an optional extra.
We have 3 houses with appropriate colours and you may buy t-shirts to give children a feeling of belonging to a house, especially on Sports day and at other team events. (Blue -Elephants, Red-Lions, Yellow-Tigers).
From Years 3-5 children swim each half term at Shipston Pool. There is a charge for the coach, swimming instructors and the hire of the pool. When children start swimming they will need a costume or trunks, towel and swimming cap for long hair. Year 2 have a ‘trial’ swim in their last term.
All children also need a painting shirt or overall to be kept in school.
Jewellry is not part of school uniform and can be a safety risk. If children have pierced ears they may wear small studs. Watches and small stud earrings must be removed for PE.
