Walcott Gardening Club has been awarded the RHS five star award for its allotment and cottage gardens. Well done to all those involved in the club.
On the 5th of November we were joined by Laura Samuels Commonwealth Games tripple jump silver medalist.
The children took part in a sponsored fitness circuit with Laura, and then an assmebly where Laura told the children how she became an athelete. It was a really inspirational afternoon. I would like to thank everyone who sponsored the children we raised £670 which is an amazing amount. This will go towards helping other aspiring young atheletes. The school also recieves a portion of this money and the school council will be given the job of working out how to spend it to promote sport and fitness.
This term we are introducing the mile a day to Walcott

At Walcott we believe that wearing a uniform is an essential part of school life that supports our ethos and values. A uniform helps bring equality and raises standards and expectations.
All children are expected to wear the uniform identified in our guide to parents and itemized below. The uniform offers lots of choice for children and parents.
The colour scheme is grey trousers and skirts, white shirts and blouses and signal red pullovers and cardigans.
In the summer girls may wear red gingham dresses. Grey pinafore dresses are also acceptable.
For PE children should have white Tshirts and red shorts. Dark coloured un branded jogging bottoms are acceptable during the winter. Children can also wear red fleeces in cold weather.
Red sun hats are available for the summer.
Children should wear sturdy, low heeled black shoes or sandals. Open toed sandals should be avoided and ‘crocks’ are not permitted. Children should have black plimsolls PE and older children (From Year Three) will require trainers,
Girls must not wear knee or ankle length fashion boots. If the weather is so bad as to require boots then Wellingtons are most appropriate.
The school supplies a range of uniform with the school logo embroidered or printed on it. Although this is taken up by the majority of children it is not compulsory and parents can source equivalent items form any supplier provided the shade of red is a match to the ones the school supplies.
Jewelry is not permitted except plain ear studs. We strongly advise parents to avoid sending children with ear studs as they present a danger on the playground. Ear studs must be removed by children for swimming and PE. Staff are not permitted to help with this. Children should have a small container for them. If they can’t be removed then sticky tape must be used to cover them.(No studs at all for swimming).
Children who do not have a PE kit with them may be given a spare PE kit in a different colour so that it doesn’t go missing. It is important for child protection reasons that children do not miss PE session.
Boys should not have hair longer than shoulder lengths. Girls with longer hair should have it tied up or plaited for safety and hygiene reasons. Deliberately attention seeking and outlandish hairstyles are not permitted. Hair should not cover the eyes.
