We follow Essex County Council’s recommendations for earrings in school. Accordingly, children will not be allowed to participate in any PE / swimming / dancing / outward bounds activity wearing any kind of earring. If a child is unable to remove their own earrings for sporting activities, he/she will not be able to take part.

At other times, only small, plain stud earrings are allowed.

Please provide your child with the following items for PE

  • Plain coloured T shirt according to what house they are in:
    Rubies – red; Crystals – green; Pearls – yellow; Sapphires – blue
    These are available from the Reception office at a cost of £2; alternatively you can provide your own.
  • Navy blue shorts
  • Black plimsolls or trainers (for outside and inside use)

It is recommended that warm clothes (sweatshirt/tracksuit trousers) are available for use in colder months, should the children go outside for PE. There are no requirements for these to be a particular colour or style.
