Please make sure your child has a named PE kit in school. This should include plimsolls or trainers that fit your child. Your child will also need a pair of Borough Green School jogging bottoms as it will be cold when we are doing outdoor PE during Term 3 and 4. You need to send your child’s PE kit on the first day of the new term and make sure their PE kit remains in school.
Please make sure you send an appropriate coat, hat, gloves depending on the weather all of which should be named.
