                          Park Street School
Dear Parents/Carers,
I hope you all enjoyed the long weekend and now we can at last settle back into school. I would
like to say how impressed I was with the quality of the ‘Greek Temples’ that came into school af-
ter the Easter Holiday. Well done to all those parents and children in Class 3 who completed this
Homework activity.
I have noticed over the last term and particularly this term that some children are unsuitably
dressed for school. Although we do not have a school uniform I would like to just clarify a few
rules: Children should wear clothes that enable them to participate in activities at school. When it
is hot they may wear a ‘vest top’ but I would ask that you ensure children have protection against
the sun. They also need to have a cardigan /sweatshirt in school for when it turns cold and they
are outside at playtime or participating in outdoor P.E. lessons.
Long floaty scarves, and T shirts/ sweatshirts with inappropriate slogans are not allowed.
Children in KS1 should have shoes suitable for playing on the climbing frame and for running on
the Green. In KS2 children should wear shoes suitable for walking and running on the Green.

Children may wear a watch and any children with pierced ears may wear sleepers or studs.
Earrings need to be removed or taped for P.E. lessons. Children in Class 3 have been asked to
remove earrings when they go swimming.
Children should not be wearing bracelets and necklaces. These have to be removed for Health
and Safety reasons when children do P.E. and there are a large number of children with friend-
ship bracelets that cannot be removed.

Nail Varnish and Make Up.
          This is not allowed with the exception of the school disco.

          Children should have a sunhat for when they are outside.

            P.E. Kits.
            This term all the classes will be going to the Green for P.E. Children should have a
named P.E kit in a bag on their peg. They should wear either plimsolls or trainers suitable for
running on the grass. There are a large number of children with ill fitting plimsolls. I would be
grateful if you could check what your child is wearing, especially parents of children in Classes 3
and 4.

                               Children from Class 4 prepared and
                               served food at our Royal Wedding
                               street party last week. They did a
                               great job but were not too
                               impressed when the food ran out!
                               Next time we know to make twice
                               as much!
            Park Street will be holding a Bags 2 school collection on the 19th May.

                             your unwanted things to the collection.
