PE and Swimming - please get your child's ears pierced in the summer holiday

Each class does PE twice a week and need indoor and outdoor PE kits in school. Year 2 children start swimming after Easter and go every Friday. Children with earrings need to be able to take them out on their own. Teachers and support staff are unable to be able to take the children's earrings out.


If you are thinking of letting your child have earrings, please can you arrange for this to be done in the summer holiday. As earrings need to be kept in for a length of time after they have first been pierced, any children who have their ears pierced during the other holidays find it a challenge to join in with P.E. and swimming lessons.



It is really important to still read with your child even though they have started school. We look for the children to aim for 5-10 minutes per day. Even if you could aim to read for a short time each day, it makes a real difference to their progress. Children are encouraged to change their books on their own and read daily at school.
