Ready for Learning


To help your child be ready to learn, please ensure that:

- they have a good night’s sleep and a healthy breakfast

- arrive at school with all the tools they need (pencils, eraser, ruler, etc). Please find below a list of equipment that we expect the children to have in school every day and a school uniform list.

- they have a full Busbridge Junior PE Kit/tracksuit. PE is a statutory part of the national Curriculum and very important to the health and well-being of your child. PE lessons are outside once a week so in cold weather the children may wear the Busbridge Junior tracksuits to keep them warm.

We advise PE kits are kept in school every day, and if worn home for any reason kit is brought back into school the next day. Everyday some children forget their kit making it difficult for them to access their PE lessons/other activities. This also wastes time asking the office for spare kit (of which we have very limited supplies). *Please note however that due to Covid restrictions we will issue instructions about PE kit at the beginning of the Autumn term which may differ from the information above. 

- warm/waterproof coat. Again in cold/wet weather please ensure your child has a warm waterproof coat in school every day as they are outside at break and lunchtime.
