If hair is long it should be tied back for practical lessons. The wearing of jewellery is dangerous and therefore not allowed; earrings will have to be removed for PE lessons and not covered with tape. As part of our continued drive to raise standards in the PE Department, can we ask all families for their support in ensuring students bring PE kit to lessons, even if they are excused from participating. We place a significant emphasis on student involvement in coaching, officiating and analysing performance even if they are unable to participate in the physical activities. 

We appreciate that in extreme situations, broken bones for example, students will physically not be able to change and these cases will be dealt with on an individual basis. 

As of September 2017, all students should have the blue and black PE kit. We also recommend that students wear football boots for the lessons on grass. Students who fail to bring their PE kit to lessons will be given spare kit to wear, so will not be excused from the lesson on this basis.
