PE Kit

Students should wear the “new style” PE uniform below, unless they have been passed down or have purchased the “old style” kit.

Please ensure that all items are clearly labelled with the student’s name.

 

Whilst Covid restrictions are in place we are unable to open the changing room facilities.
Students will be required to wear their PE kit to school on the days when they have a PE lesson timetabled.. 

 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

These are the expectations that the PE department have and the reasons for them:

  • Students are required to bring their PE kit to every lesson regardless of illness or injury.
  • If your child is suffering from illness or injury, then a note will be required to explain its nature. As professionals, the staff in the PE department know what activity is planned and therefore can make judgements on whether it is necessary for your child to be excused from the lesson.  We often find that by modifying the activity, those with illnesses or injuries are still able to learn and participate in some form.  Any illness or injury lasting more than two weeks will require a note from either the doctor or hospital.
  • Students who are injured or suffering from illness will still be expected to get changed into their PE kit for the lesson unless the injury or illness prevents them or would be made worse by doing so. The reasons for this are:
    • Depending on the activity your child may still be able to participate in some aspect of the lesson as explained above.
    • Your child must stay with their teaching group at all times.  That may mean that your child is expected to go on to the field in times of bad weather.  This results in them getting their school clothes wet, which they then have to sit around in for the rest of the day, often making their illness worse.  By changing into their PE kit on such days, your child will have clean and dry clothes to wear for the rest of the day, helping their recovery rate from the illness.

  • No aerosols are allowed in the PE changing rooms.

Jewellery

Dear Parent/Carer,

 
The wearing of jewellery (including any hidden body piercing) is not permitted on safety grounds during physical education lessons and other sporting activities. All National Sporting Bodies have also banned the practice of taping up jewellery.

These items represent a potential hazard not only to the wearer but also to other children. Medical advice confirms that any jewellery worn in physical education lessons is an unnecessary risk. Serious accidents have occurred damaging the ear of the wearer and to others.

Pupils are encouraged to leave items of jewellery and earrings at home on days when they have physical education lessons.  

Newly pierced ears can take a period of three to six weeks before sleepers and studs can be removed. If your son/daughter is considering piercings please do this at the start of the summer holidays to allow sufficient time for earrings to be safely removed. 

I ask parents to actively work with us in helping to minimise disruption to the physical education curriculum by ensuring that school guidance on jewellery is adhered to and that ears are pierced at the start of the summer holidays to allow maximum healing time.

Kindest regards,
Mr M Gullick
Learning Leader PE
