What to Wear

The summer sun keeps attempting to break through, so now is a good time to remind everyone about appropriate summer clothing. Please could you ensure your child wears tops which cover their shoulders and avoid tops with thin straps. The playground can be a bit of a sun trap, where it is easy for children to become quickly and badly sunburnt. Do remember to rub suncream on their faces, arms and legs before coming to school. Please could children avoid wearing flip-flops to school. They should be wearing sandals which fit their feet securely across the top and back of their feet. We have had so many accidents when children wear flip flops in school at playtimes and when moving around school.
