If they do so they will be asked to remove their coat and place it in their bag. If they repeatedly wear their coat instead of a jumper then the coat will be confiscated. If the jumper has been lost it should be replaced as soon as possible and a note from parents or carers given to the child to present to the member of staff if questioned. Staff will use their professional judgement to decide if a coat can be taken off based on the weather conditions).
