Forgotten PE kit
We do expect children to bring their PE kit to school when needed.
Cold or warm weather
In cold weather, children should wear a warm coat and hats, gloves and scarves may also be worn. In warm weather, children should bring a sun hat for outdoor use. If sun protection lotion is brought to school it should be clearly labelled. Children are responsible for applying sun cream themselves.
Reading bag and reading diary
When children start at St Bartholomew's, they are issued with a red reading bag. They
should bring this to school each day until at least the end of Year 2. Replacement bags can be purchased from the office. Each child should also have a reading diary which should come into school every day. The reading diary should record reading at home or at school and has space for comments.
