Children will need to bring swimwear and towel in a waterproof bag. Swimwear must be suitable for the purpose and preferably of a dark colour to enable the swimmer to be seen clearly underwater. Girls must wear a one-piece swimming costume and boys must wear swimming trunks. The School Swimming Instructor may allow boys to wear appropriate shorts; however these must not be below the knee. Large baggy shorts will impede the pupil’s movements in the water, as well as restrict the view of the teachers in seeing the movements that limbs and joints are making in the water. Goggles should only be allowed exceptionally, when chemicals in the water may adversely affect eyes. Goggles should be made of unbreakable plastic or rubber materials and children taught to use them correctly and safely prior to their attendance at the pool. Pupils who wish to wear goggles must have a permission slip signed by their parent/guardian/carer (included on the information Form). Hair must be tied back if long or of a length which might impair vision. It is expected that all the children will wear swimming hats. Jewellery/watches must be removed prior to the swimming lesson (plasters covering newly pierced parts of the body will not be allowed due to plasters in the water becoming a choking hazard). It is strongly advisable that any pupils that wish to have body piercing do so at the beginning of the School Summer holidays. Safety medic-alert bracelets or necklaces should be removed and given to the Adult in Charge for safe keeping during the swimming lesson and returned to the pupil immediately the pupil exits from the water. If the bracelet is unable to be removed it may be taped over securely with waterproof tape.

- A letter has been given out to all children today informing you of a change of school uniform supplier for Newbold Church School. Our new supplier is Pinders Schoolwear based in Sheffield.
The Government is closely monitoring the spread of Coronavirus and is taking action at home and abroad.
Newbold Church School receives daily updates from the Department For Education, advising schools regarding actions that should be taken to ensure the safety of our pupils.
The current advice is that schools should remain open until otherwise advised, and that there is no reason why children should not attend their educational setting as normal.
However, should children present with a new persistent cough or have a high temperature, current advice is that they should remain at home (self isolate) for a duration of 5 school days.
Newbold Church School loves Reading!
On 5th March 2020 the school celebrated world book day. Children across all age groups came to school dressed as a character from a book, and many shared their books with the children in their classes. parents joined us to read as the school opened at 8.45, and were invited to a coffee afternoon to share in our joy of reading during the afternoon. A huge thank-you to all the parents and friends who have supported us in celebrating the endless possibility found in a book!!

They all have great fun, and as well as learning new sports they have learnt-

- When they are a team, it's easier to do things but it also challenges them
- Everybody deserves to be included.
