The weather is looking good for tomorrow so we hope both our Sports Days will go ahead as planned. Should there be any change to the arrangements, a text will be sent to parents.
The morning events will begin at approx 9.15am - these are for Nursery (am class) and P1 - P4 classes. Children will be brought out to the pitches by their teachers and will sit on the opposite side of the track to their parents. Children in these classes should wear suitable sports kit t...o school - if the weather is like today, we'd recommend shorts and t-shirts. When all the events are over (approx 10.30am), classes will be brought back to school and will continue their school day as normal.
In the afternoon (12.45pm) Nursery (pm class) and P5 - P7 classes will be taking part in their events. Pupils in P5 - P7 should come to school wearing their PE kit (red t-shirt & navy shorts). (If children have left PE kit in school, they should wear their usual school uniform and they will be given the opportunity to get changed before sports day begins.) At the end of KS2 Sports Day (approx 2.30pm), parents may wish to pick their children up early rather than wait until 3pm. It's important that this is done in an organised fashion so the following arrangements are in place:-
Teachers will bring classes back to school to return chairs to classrooms. Parents can collect children from the following places:-
P5 classes - Junior Playground
P6B and P6O - from the fire escape door at the end of their corridor.
P6W and P7 classes - Senior Playground
We appreciate that this is a little onerous if you have several children to collect but we hope you understand that the arrangements are to ensure everyone's safety. Children will only be allowed to leave with their parent/guardian.
Members of the PSA will be selling refreshments for parents at both events so please support their fundraising efforts.
Please ensure children bring their water bottles tomorrow and remember to apply suncream as they will be outside for longer than usual.
Parents are welcome to take photographs/video but please do not share these on social media; we'd appreciate your support with this sensitive issue.
