Parents are asked to note the following:


1. Girl’s hair “accessories” should be limited to bobbles, scrunchies, covered elastic bands or ribbons, and these are to be yellow, grey or blue.


2. For reasons of safety, pupils with pierced ears may wear small, round studs only, and earrings must not be worn for swimming, .PE., or Games. No other jewellery (e.g. chains, rings, etc.) may be worn.


3. Also for safety reasons, children should wear sensible, flat-soled black school shoes for school. Trainers are not to be worn. 


4. Watches may be worn to school but we are unable to accept responsibility for their loss or damage. On days when children are engaged in P.E., games or swimming, watches should be left at home.


We should be grateful for your co-operation in these matters so that we may not only ensure the smartness of our children in their school uniform, but also help them to be as safe as possible during the school day.


For Physical Education children wear black shorts, blue T-shirt and black plimsolls. A navy jogging suit for cold weather days is optional. All sports clothing should be kept in a drawstring bag, clearly marked with your child’s name. Items of P.E. clothing can be purchased locally in the supermarkets or from Paul’s Place, Bootle Strand Shopping Centre.
