Valuables: We cannot accept responsibility for valuables brought to school. Children should not wear jewel-lery of any kind. If your child has pierced ears and earrings have to be worn in school, they must be studs fitted flush to the ear. Other fancy earrings, particularly hooped ones, are very dangerous in school and can result in ripped ears during playtimes or P.E. lessons.

Mobile phones are not permitted. If there is a specific reason why a child should need a phone for after school,

parents must request this in writing, and the phone must be handed into the school office. Whilst we will en-deavour to keep these valuable items safe, the School cannot take responsibility for phones on site.

Bags: School book bags (£5.00) and P.E. bags (£3.00) may be bought from the school office. As there is limited space for storage, bigger bags are NOT ALLOWED in school except when children are carrying specific ‘kit’ e.g. for swimming, football matches etc.
