Following agreement from the Governing Body we are pleased to announce both a change of supplier for September 2017 and new uniform garments as follows:-
After careful consideration and growing concerns over both quality and supply issues, we are pleased to announce that our new supplier will be Karlsports. Parents are welcome to order online at Karlsport Ltd, or complete and return the order form with your remittance, either direct to Karlsports, or to the school office. Completed orders will be available for collection from the school office free of charge, or you may opt to have delivered to your home address, for an additional charge (see web-site for details).
Karlsport have a new purpose built unit at Unit 7 Trafalgar Road, Kettering NN16 8DB where parents may also purchase or exchange garments.
Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children will continue to wear polo-shirt and an embroidered crew neck sweatshirt (or sweat cardigan)
Year 3, 4 ,5 and 6 will wear a white shirt (long or short sleeved), a tie, and an embroidered V neck sweatshirt or sweat cardigan.
From September 2019 we shall be PE Ready for Reception to Year 4. This means that children in these year groups will come to school in their PE kits.
As this is part of their uniform, the clothes worn must adhere to the uniform listed below. i.e. no derivatives or logos apart from the school one will be allowed.
- The PE uniform consists of:
- Plain burgundy T-shirt with school logo
- Plain black sports shorts (no lycra or tight fitting garments)
- Black or WhiteTrainers (no mark soles)
- School hoodie with school logo
- Plain black jogging bottoms (no leggings or tight fitting garments)
Wearing PE kit to school will ensure that children get the maximum benefit out of their PE sessions as they will spend more time actually physically active, rather than wasting 10 minutes (longer in Reception) at the start and end of each session getting changed.
It will also help to reduce the number of items lost by children from their kits as they will be coming in and going home wearing their PE uniform. Hopefully this will also keep the kit cleaner and tidier and the children will get fair wear from the garments.
PE days are as follows for the academic year 2019 -20:-
Reception classes will be confirmed once the children are in school full-time from 23rd September 2019
Year 1 - Tuesdays and Thursdays
Year 2 - Monday and Wednesday for terms 1, 3 and 5; Tuesday and Thursday for terms 2, 4 and 6
Year 3 - Wednesdays (swimming so remember costumes and towels) and Fridays
Year 4 - Tuesdays and Thursdays
Year 5 and 6 have purpose built classroom storage and access to a changing room. Kit should be kept in school for the term as PE lessons are more flexible.
Parents are encouraged to label everything! Henry's Friends can earn commission through Stikins.
Financial support may be available for those children eligible for Pupil Premium and we are delighted to be able to encourage our commitment to eco-schools to re-use and recycle good quality second-hand uniform garments. 'Mercy in Action' charity shop in Higham Ferrers have a dedicated 'drop off' where parent/carers can then purchase for a small donation.
Thank you for your continued commitment.
