The PE department sets extremely high standards which have helped pupils develop the skills needed to successfully face the world of work.

Please look at the different alternatives your child can wear for their PE lessons.

Rules

All students are required to bring their PE kit to every lesson. It is your child’s responsibility to make sure their kit is stored at school in a secure safe place. This is usually in their lockers. Students will receive a sanction for failing to bring their PE kit or item of kit.

If your son/daughter is sick or injured they must bring a note in their diary and their PE kit so they can take part in the lesson as an official or sports leader. An exception to this rule is, if your child has fractured a bone then they do not need to bring their kit.

We enforced this rule several years ago and since then the participation and standards of kit have been excellent. This policy has been introduced into a number of schools in the area. The most important reason is that all students are prepared to take part in the lesson. However, it is also important that they have their kit with them in case of poor weather so they will be able to change back into their dry uniform for the rest of the academic school day.

Thank you for your support.
