  • Nail varnish is not to be worn to school.  
  • Hair shoulder length or below must be tied up for girls and boysHair should be cut no shorter than a number 2, tram lines shaved into hair or hair colour are not allowed.

Swimming Lessons

As part of our curriculum provision, children in Key Stage 2 have the opportunity to have swimming lessons at the Surrenden Swimming Pool. For this activity, children require a suitable swimming costume, swimming hat and towel. A small charge is made to cover the cost of hiring the swimming pool. Children who show a particular strength in swimming are offered extra lifesaving sessions and non-swimmers are given extra options.

Parents are asked to ensure that all items of clothing are clearly named.
