P.E. Kit

Please note as a school we are happy for all PE kit items to also be used on forest school days, so that no unnecessary wear is put on your child's normal, everyday clothes.



We would stress the need for simple clothes and shoes at first, as children are encouraged to be independent in their dressing as soon as they enter school.  


As children go out to play no matter what the weather for OPAL Play, children should bring a waterproof coat with a hood, and we ask that they have a pair of waterproof trousers and wellies that remain in school.  During the summer months, we would advise that your child bring a hat to school to protect them from the sun.  You may also wish to send your child with sun cream which they will need to apply themselves.


Long hair will need to be tied up for PE sessions and therefore children with long hair should ensure that they have a bobble in their PE kit (otherwise they will be asked to use an elastic band).  Children are requested to not wear earrings on P.E. days or they will need to be covered (parents are responsible for providing medical tape for the children to cover the earrings themselves).


For Health and Safety reasons we do discourage the wearing of jewellery in school.  A watch may be worn (though Smartwatches are not permitted) and girls may wear stud earrings.  


Shaved hairstyles and colours are not considered suitable for school. It would also be appreciated if gelling was kept to a minimum.  Children with long hair is to be tied up.  If children wish to wear headbands or bows, these should be blue, white, grey and they should be plain and of a sensible size.


Make up and/or nail varnish should not be worn to school as it is considered unsuitable.


Ravenshead C of E Forest Essentials Kit List 

In order to be able to use our forest all year round, children need to have the appropriate kit – ‘there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing!’ 


To keep children safe, comfortable and prepared, please ensure that they come to school in / with the correct kit on their woods day. If they do not come with the correct clothing and footwear, they will not be able to take part in the session and will remain inside. 


To avoid bites and other injuries, children need to have their legs and arms covered during woods sessions. They should also not be wearing any clothing with any lose parts or dangling bits. This is essential. 


Please be mindful that clothes will get dirty as we do not intend to stay clean!  Children will need a clean pair of shoes to change into when they go back into their classroom.


What to wear to school 

School PE Kit (not clothes of choice): 

  • Comfortable trousers  - joggers or leggings, no shorts.

  • Long sleeved t-shirt - white, black or navy blue. If your child only has short sleeved t-shirts, that is fine, but they will need to keep their jumper on. 

  • Jumper - not a hoodie that has dangling cords.

  • Trainers - for wearing in school. 


What to bring to school 

  • Waterproof coat with a hood.
  • Change of footwear - sturdy, closed shoes e.g. wellies or walking boots, not sandals or any shoes without a back or that don’t cover toes. 
  • Hat - appropriate for the weather. 


Added extras (if you have them) 

  • Waterproof trousers. 
  • Fleece. 
  • Spare, thick socks – to wear over the top of their normal socks, particularly useful in winter. 
  • Additional optional clothing for winter – extra layer, gloves, neck snood (not scarf).
