Hints and Tips

Your child is expected to be able to go to the toilet by themselves and get dressed and undressed for PE.  They will want to do this without help.  So the following may be preferred:
  • Velcro rather than laces until they can tie them themselves
  • Shoes without high heels
  • Plimsolls with elastic or Velcro for gym (expensive trainers are bound to get lost)
  • Polo shirts rather than those that have buttons all down the front
  • Summer dresses with zips not buttons
  • Elasticated waists on trousers and no belts
Please avoid anything with “detachable” features, e.g. detachable hood, as they are bound to become detached!

Tips for labelling

  • If you buy Vinyl stick-on labels make sure you get the clear labelsto go over the top for use in shoes.
  • Pale socks can be labelled by writing on the sole with indelible felt pen; otherwise you need sew-on labels.
  • Swimming caps can be labelled with a laundry marker or indelible biro.
