For details of our uniform, please click here. All pupils require a school bag. We can support families to obtain a bag; simply ask at the school office.
Pupils require an indoor and an outdoor PE kit to be kept in school at all times. Teachers will send this home regularly for washing. PE kit is made up of black/ navy shorts (no logos) and a plain white t-shirt. Both indoor and outdoor footwear is required. Football strips and branded sportswear are not permitted and should not be sent to school.
We can support families to obtain PE kit and have a good supply of second hand uniform. Please contact the school office and ask for an appointment. All conversations will be held in confidence.
The pupils will have plenty of opportunities to learn in the outdoors. Please ensure they come to school with appropriate footwear and a warm jacket. Wellies and over trousers are also useful in the poor weather as our grass area can become particularly wet and muddy!
Toys to School
Our school is well resourced with lots of toys and resources available to the children. Please do not bring toys (including cards) from home into school. If it is your child’s special day, please click here.
All jotters, folders and required stationery will be provided for you child. We believe that all pupils should have access to high quality resources and equipment and, as part of our poverty proofing work, want to ensure that no family feels pressure to buy pencils, rubbers or other resources.
That said, nobody loves stationery more than the teachers here at St Andrew’s! Pupils are welcome to bring in pencil cases containing stationery (nothing valuable and no scissors etc.) to use in school when appropriate. Pencil cases will be stored in pupil bags in the classroom to ensure working areas remain clutter free.
Water in School
There is much evidence to suggest that drinking plenty water throughout the day helps you think! The children are welcome to bring in water (not juice) to school each day to drink in the classroom. Bottles should be taken home at the end of each day.
We can support families to obtain water bottles; simply ask at the office.
A small healthy snack is great to eat during mid morning break. If you require support with providing your child with a snack, please contact the school office. On trip days or when we are out on the Hill we may ask for an additional item; your child’s teacher will let you know about this!
