Home Reading

All children must have a St Chad’s Book Bag in school every day. Book bags can be purchased form the school office for £3.50. We expect children to read at least three times a week at home alongside an adult. Please ensure that your child’s Reading Records is signed at least three times a week. Reading Records are checked every week. Further information on Home Reading can be found within the Home Reading section on this website (parents/carers tab).


Please ensure that your child has the correct PE kit in school every day. All items must be labelled with your child’s name and stored in a suitable drawstring bag. St Chad’s PE bags can be purchased from the school office for £3.50. We do not have storage facilities for rucksacks. During the colder months, we advise that your child has a pair of black jogging bottoms or leggings. Staff members are not allowed to remover earrings. We therefore advise that your child does not wear any earrings on PE days. If wish for your child to wear jewellery, they must be able to remove their own earrings. We cannot be acceptable for the loss of any jewellery items on PE days.

During the week, all children take part in a Daily Mile and ‘Go Noodle’. We are committed to ensuring that our children are active, fit and healthy. ‘Go Noodle’ videos can be accessed from home, please follow the link below.
