School bags and uniform

From this September onwards the PTA will purchase a suitable school bag for all Reception children as they start school. The blue reading book bags will then be expected to be used throughout KS1. No other bags will be required.

Our school building simply doesn’t have the space or capacity to store large rucksacks, the cloakrooms are bursting! Large backpacks are not required for school, children only need a small bag, ideally a reading folder style bag as these store very easily in bespoke storage boxes, leaving space in cloakrooms for coats. Every day, children need to bring their reading book, reading diary, any homework and spellings plus their water bottle. These relatively small items do not require a large bag and we will be clamping down on large bags from September, so we ask that parents support us and think twice before purchasing any school bags for September.

Children in our current reception class or other classes who currently have a school book bag, please continue to use this next academic year.  School boog bags can be purchased from, they are a much cheaper and more manageable option for school.

A reminder that school uniform details are on our website. Uniform is expected to be worn by all pupils daily as per our uniform policy. Trainers and boots are not acceptable uniform choices and should not be worn, likewise leggings and cycling shorts should not be worn instead of trousers, shorts or skirts. Earrings should be a simple stud. We have a large selection of donated uniform available for free for families, please pop into school to take a look if you would like to make use of this.

Thank you for your continued support.
