All Pupils – We are missing a number of school strips and we are having a ‘Kit Amnesty’. If you have a running vest, school football strip, hockey strip etc please return them to PE as soon as possible. Some have been missing for over a year so please check at home and return what you have.

If you feel embarrassed about having held on to kit for so long then you can leave it in the PE classroom or in the room beside the classroom. We just need them back otherwise we will need to send teams out to play matches in bibs and we would rather pupils had nice kit/strips to wear at fixtures.
