PE Kit

  •          White St Anne’s PE t-shirt
  •          A pair of bottle green shorts
  •          A pair of white socks

  •          A St Anne’s PE bag

  • In the winter months, children may wear waterproof clothing, gloves and a sensible woolly hat (no hats with tassels please - they obscure vision).  Scarves cannot be worn due to the risk of choking, especially during games activities.   
  • During hot and sunny weather, a St Anne’s coloured baseball cap is advised to be worn to shield children’s heads from the sun.  Parents/carers are warmly encouraged to apply sun cream to their child before school to provide some protection from the sun.

Children's Feet

On average children’s feet grow at two sizes per year in the first four years of life, and one size per year thereafter until growth is complete.  However, a child’s foot may not grow for a considerable period of time and then grow several sizes in a relatively short period.  To ensure that shoes still fit properly for length and width, a trained shoe fitter should check them every eight weeks.  You may do this more frequently if you are aware that they are actively growing in height.  Checking that your child's shoes fit properly is best done by the shop where the shoes were bought, ideally by a trained shoe fitter who will also measure the feet. 

 There are four main warning signs to look for when checking your child's feet: 

  •          Skin: look for areas of redness and rashes particularly between the toes, in the arches and below the ankle bones indicating athlete’s foot, particularly if they are itchy.  Look for red marks and/or blisters at the back of the heel and on the tops of the small joints of the toes indicating ill-fitting shoes.  Raised and painful hard masses on the soles of the feet may indicate a verruca.
  •          Nails: any inflammation around the nails should be taken seriously as it may indicate infection.  Any discoloration of the toenails should be checked by your podiatrist.
  •          Deformities:  toes should always be straight in line with the foot and not drawn back or curled. The fifth toe may tuck under the fourth slightly and the fourth under the third toe but the big toe should also be straight.
  •          Posture: If the feet appear to be excessively turned in or out or the arch looks very flat, particularly if the child complains of pain, the advice of your registered podiatrist should be sought.
