Puddles and Sunshine’s have their own special uniform which consists of a royal blue sweatshirt/cardigan, navy jogging bottoms or leggings and a white/pale blue/navy polo shirt.

The uniform is important to the children in the Foundation stage as we follow a very practical curriculum and it allows the children to play and learn without being restricted by unsuitable clothes and encourages them to become independent.

Uniform can be purchased through school via Parent Pay or through the Tesco website.

The curriculum in the Raindrops room will be play based therefore children need to be dressed appropriately to enable them to fully participate. We expect children to come to nursery dressed ready to play and learn. Children will be digging, painting, climbing getting very messy and having fun in our unit.

What do I need to do to become a school volunteer?

Athelstan school is very grateful of any help and support from parents and carers. In line with the schools safeguarding policy and procedures we ask that all volunteers complete an induction and are subject to the schools own risk assessment and volunteer code of conduct . Volunteers who are helping on a regular basis in school will also be asked to undergo an enhanced DBS Check and take part in a school safeguarding induction. Details of this can be obtained from the school office.
