We do not encourage children to wear jewellery to school. If children have their ears pierced then they should only wear small stud earrings.
As a school we are committed to ensuring that each child participates fully in the PE curriculum as a means of improving the children’s physical skills and promoting health and well-being. This means that children need to be properly equipped and ready for physical activity throughout the week.
Please be reminded that your child needs to have their indoor and outdoor PE kit with them in school. We strongly advise that your child keeps their kit in school all week in case we need to swap their PE day(s) to fit in with other school events. It is likely that your child will do both indoor and outdoor PE during the week and so they need to have the following items in their PE bag at all times.
As cloakroom facilities are limited, it is essential that children bring their PE kit in a ‘drawstring’ type bag. The bag and all items of clothing must be clearly labelled with the child’s name.
Your child needs to wear shorts/leggings and a t-shirt for indoor PE. Children are barefoot during indoor lessons.
We will hold PE outside during the winter months provided that the weather is dry. Your child will need tracksuit trousers, a long-sleeved sweatshirt, socks and trainers in addition to their normal PE kit. On colder days, children will be permitted to wear hats and gloves (not mittens) also.
Long hair needs to be tied back for all lessons.
Your child will not be permitted to wear earrings during PE. If your child is unable to put in/take out their own earrings they will be required to cover them with micro-pore tape, supplied by you. Your child needs to be able to do this themselves. If they cannot, please can you ensure that they do not wear earrings on the days that they do PE.
Participation in PE is a legal requirement and something that most children really enjoy. We are grateful for your help in ensuring that your child is properly equipped.
