Back to School: PE and Fruit

Back to School: PE and Fruit

Dear Parents/Carers 

Please find below some important information regarding your child's return to school: 


Children will resume PE lessons from next week. As a result of government guidance and as part of our risk assessment, we will now be aiming to hold all PE lessons outdoors. On the days when your child has PE, they should come to school in their PE kit and will stay in their kit for the whole day. See below the items your child will need:

- Plain jogging bottoms and sweatshirt/hoodie (must be grey, black or navy blue with no logo or pattern)

- Black plimsolls

- PE shorts (Black or navy) for warmer days.

- Plain white T-shirt

- Plain white or grey socks

Please check with your class teacher which days your child has PE. All items must be labelled with your child's name. 


We will be having a morning and afternoon playtime to ensure that children spend as much time as possible outdoors and to minimise prolonged periods in the classroom. All children should have a warm waterproof coat labelled with their name.


Public Health England has suspended the free fruit scheme for schools. We are awaiting further updates of when this will resume. In the meantime, we would like to ask that children bring 1 piece of fruit from home each day for a mid morning snack. Please make sure the fruit is in a reusable sandwich bag or container with your child's name on. The fruit must be prepared so that your child can eat it independently as staff will not be handling/cutting fruit. 


Please can all adults wear a face covering while on the school site. You will need to identify yourself to your class teacher on the first day by removing your mask when you drop your child off, however please keep masks on at all other times.

Thank you and best wishes,

Burlington Infant & Nursery School
