At Kingsthorne, all children are expected to wear the school uniform. In case of financial difficulty please contact the Headteacher.
All clothing should be clearly labelled with the child's name, so that if found it may be returned. Uniform may be bought from school or from any other supplier, e.g. Tesco at New Oscott. School sweatshirts, cardigans, polo shirts and fleeces are available to purchase from the school office.
We expect the children to have a white shirt, black shorts and black pumps. Their kit should be in school on the first day of term and stay in school for the entire half term when it will then be sent home to be washed. If PE kit is not in school children will be expected to use spare kit provided by school, however, we will remind parents/carers that it is their responsibility to provide the kit at the correct time. Children may also bring a tracksuit and trainers for outdoor PE. Please speak to your child's class teacher to find out if PE is scheduled for outside.
For swimming (children in years 3-6 only), girls need a one piece swimming costume, towel and hair must be tied back. Boys need trunks or shorts (these cannot be longer than knee length) and a towel.
We would appreciate it if you could ensure that your child has a coat in school everyday as the weather can be unpredictable. Also, in the event of hot weather, could you please provide a sun hat and apply sun cream.
Note: Sun cream can be brought into school for your child to apply themselves. Please label it with your child's name, class, your name and signature.
Children must be collected at 3.30pm from their classroom door. Children are not allowed to walk home alone. If your child is to be collected by someone else, please see the class teacher before hand or telephone the office on 0121 675 3897 to let them know and provide a password. Children in Phase 1 are not allowed to be collected by anyone under the age of 16.
Who to go to for help.
If your child needs any help in school, they should speak to their class teacher or teaching assistant who will help them to resolve any issues.
If, as a parent, you have any concerns about your child in school please feel free to speak to their class teacher. If you feel you cannot speak to them then speak to Mrs Lillie (Family Support Worker) or to a Phase Leader.
