Can my child wear laced shoes or trainers?

No. We like to encourage children to be independent. Your child will need to be able to take off and put on their own shoes by themselves eventually, so its important to put them in sensible shoes straight away. 

Trainers can ONLY be worn for outdoor PE - you will be informed by your child's class teacher when these are needed. 

Proper black shoes, which are sturdy, supportive and easy for your child to take in and off themselves are required.
