P.E. is a compulsory part of the statutory curriculum from the age of 4 to 16. Clothing and footwear are important aspects to safety in PE. For hygiene, health and safety reasons, it is essential therefore, that children are dressed appropriately for any physical activity. Appropriate footwear is essential, therefore, pupils should wear training shoes when taking part in physical activity.
Pupils should come to school dressed in suitable clothing and footwear (details provided below) only on days they are timetabled to do P.E. or have been advised by their teacher they will be participating in an activity that require them to wear their P.E. clothing on a particular day.
All pupils on days they are doing P.E. should wear:
- plain black leggings / black tracksuit bottoms or black shorts;
- school sweatshirt and school polo shirt.
Pupils therefore, DO NOT REQUIRE plimsolls and a slipper bag.
It may be necessary for pupils to tie long hair back during P.E. activities (i.e. swimming and gymnastics) if the length of a child’s hair is deemed to be a concern due to health and safety considerations.
In the interests of health and safety, children should not to wear jewellery to school. This includes earrings, rings, bracelets and necklaces. If you wish your child to wear earrings, we ask that studs are worn, but this will be at their own risk.
To enable children to participate safely during P.E. lessons, we ask that they leave their earrings at home on a P.E. day or that they remove them before participating in the lessons.
Please note that at swimming lessons the instructors at the Valley Leisure Centre pool will not allow any child into the swimming pool wearing jewellery. (Please note that this is the policy of the Valley Leisure Centre).
