What to Bring

Toys to School

Our school is well resourced with lots of toys and resources available to the children. Please do not bring toys (including cards) from home into school.

Valuables in School

The school is a busy place and, with the exception of mobile phones, nothing can be looked away. Please do not allow your child to bring jewellery, toys, books or watches into school as staff cannot be responsible for these.

Classroom Equipment

All jotters, folders and required stationery will be provided for you child. We believe that all pupils should have access to high quality resources and equipment and, as part of our poverty proofing work, want to ensure that no family feels pressure to buy pencils, rubbers or other resources.

That said, nobody loves stationery more than the teacher! Pupils are welcome to bring in pencil cases containing stationery (nothing valuable and no scissors etc.) to use in school when appropriate. Pencil cases will be stored in pupil bags in the classroom to ensure working areas remain clutter free.

Water in School

There is much evidence to suggest that drinking plenty water throughout the day helps you think! The children are welcome to bring in water (not juice) to school each day to drink in the classroom. Bottles should be taken home at the end of each day.

We can support families to obtain water bottles; simply ask at the office.

Snacks

A small healthy snack is great to eat during mid morning break. If you require support with providing your child with a snack, please contact the school office.

Packed Lunches from Home

If you choose to provide a packed lunch for your child please note that all uneaten contents from the lunch box will be sent home at the end of the day. This ensures that you know exactly what your child has eaten and also that you can recycle the contents of the box (a core part of our sustainability work). We know that fruit skins, pips and cores can be a bit messy after being in the box- a wee washable box for the waste works well.
