We are in favour of uniform, as we feel it gives the children a sense of belonging to the school community. It also provides a practical form of dress for school activities.

Children in Rainbow Nursery are not required to wear uniform, but should the parents wish to, Rainbow Nursery jumpers and t-shirts are available from our supplier.

The items listed below are available from main chain stores. Items marked with an asterisk * can be obtained from our supplier PMG Schoolwear. They have a shop at 393-395 Hook Road, Chessington. KT9 1EL (telephone 020 8786 2211) or you can visit their website www.pmgschoolwear.co.uk.

Children will need a one-piece swimsuit and towel to school on the day they swim. Long Bermuda-type shorts are not suitable as they restrict movement and make it difficult for children to learn to swim. Unless children have suitable swimwear, regrettably they will not be able to take part in the lesson as we do not keep spare kit. For safety and hygiene reasons, it is most important that all children wear a swimming hat (available from the school shop). Earrings can be particularly hazardous, therefore, any child sent to school wearing them on a day when they are due to swim will not be allowed in the pool. If you would like your child to wear goggles whilst swimming, please write a note to tell the swimming teacher.

Other equipment may include
  • Coat, anorak or kagoule
  • Sun hat or Latchmere sun cap *
  • A Latchmere book bag
  • Simple four-function calculator
  • Children in Years 5 & 6 are encouraged to have their own pencil case with pencils, crayons, an eraser, a small ruler and a black handwriting pen (not a biro).
