We all try to look smart and tidy at school. We have a school uniform comprising of a red sweatshirt/cardigan displaying our school emblem, with a red or white shirt/poloshirt. Sensible robust school footwear should also be worn to cope with the demands of school life. Dark grey or black school trousers are worn or dark grey or black skirts/pinafores if girls prefer. (Summer red gingham dresses are an option for girls in warmer weather or dark grey or black school shorts for boys or girls.)
Our uniform includes a Repton Primary School bookbag which can be purchased from Pupil Schoolwear in Swadlincote or WB Schoolwear, Walton on Trent, who provide an online service (www.wbglobaltrading.co.uk/acatalog/Repton_Primary_School.html)
Your child will need black pumps, black shorts and a red tee shirt in a clearly named, drawstring P.E. bag which will hang on a school peg. Trainers will be needed for outdoors and during the winter months. Children should also bring a dark tracksuit for outdoor P.E. sessions.
If you child's class is timetabled for swimming, they will need a black swimming costume or trunks and a towel (loose swimming shorts may not be worn due to Health and Safety reasons). We also encourage children to bring a suitable coat to walk to and from the Repton Pool (Wednesday mornings).
Goggles can be dangerous if worn incorrectly. If you wish your child to wear goggles during their swimming sessions you need to give written permission and take responsibility for them wearing them.
Valuables and Jewellery:
Children are not allowed to wear jewellery for school (except watches and small earrings for pierced ears) as these items can cause potential injury to the wearer or others and items can get lost. Earrings must also be removed for P.E. lessons and swimming and can no longer be covered with tape.
Members of staff cannot be responsible for:
a) accidents caused by the wearing of jewellery eg. necklaces, earrings or bracelets.
b) The loss or damage of any items of value brought to school by the children.
PLEASE CLEARLY NAME ALL YOUR CHILD’S BELONGINGS
With everything labelled and no valuable items in school, there will be little Lost Property. Anything left, however will be stored in the PE changing rooms off the hall. It will be disposed of at the end of each term
