KS2 children are advised to have a tracksuit on colder days for outdoor games and after-school P.E. clubs.

The P.E. kit should be placed in a drawstring bag and kept on your child’s peg in school. Kit may be taken home for washing each half-term holiday and should be returned to school immediately after the holiday.

PLEASE ENSURE THAT ALL ITEMS OF CLOTHING ARE CLEARLY MARKED WITH YOUR CHILD’S NAME.

For safety reasons NO jewellery is allowed in school except a wristwatch and STUD earrings. All watches and earrings must be removed for P.E. lessons and swimming, it is therefore advisable that children do not wear them on these days.

You are asked to note that neither the school nor the Local Authority accept responsibility for the loss or damage to personal property whilst on or left at St Andrew’s C of E Primary School. It is therefore advisable that your child does not wear a watch or earrings or bring other valuables into school.

For reasons of safety we ask:

• if tights are worn to school, a pair of socks is provided for P.E. lessons
• long hair is tied back, particularly for P.E.

School book bags may be purchased from the uniform shop in Princes Pavement, Birkenhead. These are ideal for reading books and homework and are recommended.
