Key Information

Please find on this page key information that you may need to know to help your child navigate their Year 5 journey.

We politely ask that all items of clothing (including hats, PE shoes, wellies) are named before coming to school. Unfortunately, we sometimes have many unnamed items at the end of the week that we cannot match to a child.


We also ask that any jumpers not belonging to your child are returned.


In year 5, our PE days are Monday and Tuesday. Your child will need to come into school wearing PE kit and named PE shoes.  

We will provide:

  • T-shirt
  • Tracksuit bottoms
  • Shorts


Children will need to wear trainers or plimsolls on this day and they may wear their jumpers in they wish. Weather dependent, we will take our pupils outdoors for their PE learning. When not possible, we use our school hall. 


Healthy school meals are available to pay for and order every day with three choices offered.


You may choose to instead send in a healthy packed lunch for your child.


You can decide on a day-to-day basis whether your child will have a school lunch or a packed lunch; we will take their order every day!


You may choose to provide your child a healthy snack to consume at morning break time.


If you need advice on appropriate lunch box foods or you would like more information on healthy eating at Springwood, please ask your child's class teacher or consult the School Menus link on the main page under the "About Us" heading.
