In Autumn and Winter, it is extremely important that all pupils come to school in weather appropriate clothing. We will be outside for playtime and lunch breaks except in cases of heavy rain or dangerous weather (e.g. Met Office amber warnings for wind or lightning). Our school population has grown significantly over the past four years and it is no longer possible to restrict the whole school population to the concrete areas of the playground in wet weather. Therefore, please send your child to school with warm clothes, a waterproof coat and waterproof shoes/wellies on days when rain is forecast. The school has 200 sets of waterproof coats and around 100 pairs of wellies which we can provide in emergencies, but we do not yet have every size that our pupils might need.
We can provide support to families with winter clothing and footwear. If you think you might benefit from this, please get in touch with our PSO team on 01316694498 and ask for Kerry or Kim.
Please note, we can no longer open the gym hall before school on rainy days due to hosting breakfast club. In the case dangerous weather (e.g. Met Office amber warnings for high winds or lightning). We will open classrooms ten minutes early (e.g. from 8:40).
