Pre-Reception children need a small PE bag that stays in school to hold plimsolls, a change of clothes and Wellington boots. Please also provide spare underwear and baby wipes in case of wetting or soiling incidents. During warmer weather children need a sunhat and suncream. Children may also bring a water bottle. We respect the need for younger children who still need personal comfort toys. These can either be left in their bags or be given a special ‘watching’ place in the classroom.
From Years 3 upwards we recommend that children bring their own labelled stationery equipment (handwriting pens, pencils, rubbers, 30cm rulers) to school in a named pencil case. In Years 5 and 6 all children are expected to have a handwriting (or fountain) pen, pencil, ruler, pencil sharpener and rubber. Each child needs a school bag (available from School Colours) to keep their books safe when transporting them around school.
Information about what pupils wear at Kent College Junior School, and where to purchase uniform and sports kit, can be found on the Uniform page of the website.
