PE Kit & Outdoor Learning 2023/24


Most classes, but not all, also have Outdoor Learning timetabled- the timetable may vary throughout the year. If this is the case, your child should wear their PE kit but also bring a pair of wellies/ old shoes and waterproofs to school. Most of the time, your child will have a separate PE lesson and Outdoor Learning session within the same day. Please note that we do hold a stock of waterproofs and wellies for families that may find the cost prohibitive.
