Can I once again ask parents to ensure that your child has a traditional drawer string bag for their P.E. kit. These are available from only £1.50 in stores such as Matalan and Sports Direct and would really help us to keep our cloakroom areas tidy. We experience particular problems in years 1, 2 and 3 but next year other year groups will be affected. It is worth thinking about it during the holidays if you are out and about and see a good bargain.
We are also requesting that you work towards ensuring that children only bring flat book bags, which fit into trays, to school rather that satchels and other large bags as these too have a big impact on our cloakrooms. Clearly if children are involved in sporting activities after school a larger bag may be necessary but otherwise please avoid them.
Many thanks in advance for your support in these areas.
