The guidelines state that schools should encourage children to return to school as ‘normal’ as possible which means that where possible, to wear school uniform. Guidelines also state that clothes worn to school should be easy to wash on a regular basis. Therefore, at this point I will allow parents to decide whether to send their children to school in uniform or not and will review the situation in the near future.
Only a bag, lunchbox, water bottle and coat are needed to be brought into school on a daily basis. The school will provide all necessary writing equipment for each child.
