A message now for our upcoming Year Fours', we absolutely loved meeting you on the 'moving-up' transition days and are extremely excited about teaching you in September. In the meantime, we hope you  have a lovely holiday and a well-deserved rest. We look forward to welcoming you back on Monday 4th September 2023.

Your child's eyesight - May 23

It is known that eyesight can change during childhood and adolescence.

The School Nursing Team, recommend that during this school year, if they are not already being seen regularly, you take your child to an optician of your choice, where their eyesight can be tested free of charge. It is advisable that you contact your optician to book an appointment for your child before attending.

Year Four have swimming on a Tuesday and P.E. on a Wednesday.

Swimming lessons will begin on Tuesday 12th September 2023. Please ensure your child brings swimwear and a towel. Children can also wear their PE kit to school on Tuesday for ease when changing.

For PE, children should wear shorts, leggings or jogging bottoms that are plain and dark in colour - dark blue, black or grey. They should not have large logos on. Hoodies are not to be worn for PE. We ask that children wear a jumper/sweatshirt if another layer is needed. Every child is given one coloured PE t-shirt when they start the school; subsequent PE t-shirts need to be purchased. The colour of the t-shirt represents the colour of the House every child is placed in: Cheng Ho (green), Estervanico (yellow), Sir Francis Drake (blue) and Louise Boyd (red). 

Trainers are needed as footwear for PE and must also be a dark colour.
