Please ensure your son/daughter has their PE kit in school everyday.  It is important for health and safety that appropriate clothing and footwear is worn during P.E. lessons.

Watches are the only appropriate jewellery to wear. If your child has their ears pierced, small stud earrings can be worn but he/she must be able to remove the studs themselves for PE sessions.

Mobile phones are only allowed in exceptional circumstance where they facilitate collection arrangements of children in Years 5 and 6 after school. If your son/daughter has to bring a phone into school please contact me to discuss the matter and arrangements will be made for it to be kept safely in the school office until the end of the day.

Chroma Sport have not been in a position to trade in recent months, due to the pandemic. However in light of recent Government guidelines we have been advised that they have now re-opened. They have assured us that they are committed to providing a safe and efficient school-wear service that protects their customers and staff. In order to do this they have identified 3 key areas:-

  1. To aim to reduce the numbers of customers needing to visit the store they are encouraging as many customers as possible to use the online sales service. Staffing and IT levels have been increased to cope with the likely higher demand and increase in sales orders via this service.The delivery service has been  improved with the introduction of a Chroma home delivery service for those who live locally so that there is a choice between a signed 1st  next day delivery service and a non-signed for home delivery service.
  2. To reduce the number of customers in-store, they will be promoting and setting up a Free Click and Collect service where customers can order online and collect their orders without even having to enter the store.
  3. The measures in place for customer visiting the store include:
  • Social distancing markings and guidance
  • Hand Sanitisers available on entry
  • Restrictive numbers in-store
  • No trying on of garments – Advice from our expert staff on sizing
  • Avoid touching or trying on of items
