Change of Shoes
We are pleased that the children are able to use the grass for play and lunchtimes but this has provided us with a dilemma as a school. The amount of mud and dirt being brought into the school building has meant that some areas of the school are almost unusable, damaging the carpets and impacting on cleaning schedules at the end of the school day.
We do not want to stop play on the grass if we can avoid it so are asking for help from Parents/Carers if possible. We wondered if children could be provided with a pair of old shoes, wellies or trainers for outdoor play so that they can change into clean shoes when they come back into the building. Alternatively children could wear slippers (not novelty) or gym shoes in school.
We are aware that for some families this may not be possible which we completely understand, but any effort would be very much appreciated.
