Useful Info

Clothing

Clothes should be comfortable and suitable for messy play. We endeavour to provide protective clothing for children when they play with messy activities.

We also ensure Yarburgh children are provided with and wear hi-visibility jackets when they are outside in the garden and on staff supervised outings.

We encourage children to gain the skills to allow them to be more independent and look after themselves including taking themselves to the toilet and taking off and putting on outdoor clothes. We suggest jogging bottoms or similar to help them to do this. Please bring spare clothes (including socks and underwear) and ensure all belongings are named.

Please also consider the following:

  • For safety reasons, no jewellery (except medical or religious)
  • Sun hat in the summer (please apply sun cream before school and if staying for extended session please ensure sun cream is provided in their bag)
  • Wellies for outside play
  • Plimsolls, soft shoes or slippers to be worn indoors during the winter months when outdoor shoes are likely to be dirty, wet or muddy
  • Ensure nappies, wipes and bags are provided if necessary
  • For safety reasons we ask that spare clothes and shoes are not brought in plastic bags

Boot bags, t-shirts and sweatshirts are available for purchase. Please speak to a member of staff for more information.
