Colour run at school
Colour run at school

Friday 12th July from 2pm

Children will run around a course set up on the sports day field being thrown powder paint to run through. They will also be given a paint bag at the end to throw in a designated ’paint area’.

The entry fee is £5 per child and you will be asked to sign a waiver when purchasing a ticket.

It will be messy! Children must wear old clothes – white T-shirts are suggested so they show up the paint. There will be a mufti day at school on Friday 12th. Children must also bring eye protection such as glasses, sunglasses or swimming goggles. Without this they cannot run.

The paint is safe and it will wash off. Do bring a towel for your  journey home.

The event is taking place during school hours. Children must be picked up by a designated parent/carer before they do the run and they can go straight home afterwards.

EYFS children must have a designated parent/carer accompany them during the run (beware you may get messy, so wear old clothes yourself). KS1 and KS2 children must have a designated parent spectating (as they will be leaving school straight after the event). Children are not allowed back into school afterwards.

Children participating in the run will be waiting for their designated parent/carer on the top field in classes. Please come through the main school entrance to collect them. The back entrance to the school will be locked during this event.

You can allocate another parent to be the designated parent/carer of your child during this race. You will need to name them when you sign

Time slots have been allocated as follows:

EYFS 2 – 2.20pm

Year 1 & 2 2.20 – 2.40pm

Year 3 & 4 2.40 – 3.00pm

Year 5 & 6 3.00 – 3.20pm

Please arrive promptly to ensure your children can run with their class mates, and allow a smooth flow for the children.

Chuckles children should please bring a spare change of clothes for afterwards!
