Could you please ensure that your child has their indoor PE kit in school. For indoor gymnastics/dance this term your child needs plimsolls, shorts and a tee shirt. There will be outdoor PE after Easter, therefore please send in your child’s outdoor PE kit until after the holiday. For outdoor PE your child needs jogging bottoms, tee shirt, spare socks, jumper or sweat shirt and trainers/football boots. [old gloves and a hat are also useful!]  This term the children will be playing football outside and the weather is cold, all children must do PE therefore we usually lend kit, but what we can lend is limited .  All kit borrowed will be sent home with the child to be washed and returned. It would also be best to put your child’s outdoor kit into a separate bag thus we can send this kit home on a weekly basis e.g. it will get very dirty.

If your child is taking part in peripatetic music lessons could you please ensure that your child has their musical instrument in school on  Fridays.

But what is SOKS?

Not a lot of parents realise what the SOKS stands for or what they do on behalf of our children. SOKS is The Support Our Kids Association and with your support in developing and attending fund raising  initiatives we raise money to support children in school e.g we go to the theatre in January, we have an Autumn fayre, meals etc!  Without their hardwork and your support there is so much in school that we couldn’t do!!
