PE KIT - could you please try to ensure that your child has a full indoor and outdoor PE kit in school all term. Currently there are children each week who do not have any or the correct kit to allow them to fully enjoy their PE lesson. As a brief reminder, indoor kit is black shorts, a plain white t-shirt and plimsolls whilst outdoor kit is a pair of track suit trousers, a suitable top to go over the indoor kit and a pair of trainers.
