A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

PE kits:

As we resume back to normal routines in school, we are keen to return to children wearing school uniform every day and to bring their school PE kits in a separate bag on PE days.

PE kits can then be left in school and will be sent home at the end of every half term so they can be washed and returned to school.

PE kits consist of a white T-shirt, black shorts and pumps or black trainers and should be brought and kept in school in, ideally in small named draw-string PE bags in order to minimise the space taken up in cloakrooms or a named carrier bag. If you have already purchased a coloured t-shirt, to match the house your child is in, it is fine to send that instead of the white T shirt.


A reminder re earrings:

Earrings – Pupils should only wear small studs to school, not hoops or danglers. Ideally, earring should be removed on PE days. Students unable to remove earrings should be required to make them safe by taping, front and back, which may offer a measure of protection.  The taping should be sufficient to prevent the stud post penetrating the bone behind the ear should an unintentional blow be received (eg from someone or from equipment such as a ball). This taping may be done at home for younger children or prior to the lesson for older students. Staff are not required to remove or tape earrings for students.

Any parents considering having their child’s ears pierced should consider them being done at the beginning of the summer holidays to give the ears time to heal before the start of the new term.


Thank you in advance for your support with this matter.
