PE Important Information

P.E will take place on Wednesday and Fridays, so children must ensure their P.E. kits are worn to school on these days.

The St Paulinus P.E. kit consists of a white t-shirt with the school logo, blue (or black) shorts, and a pair of pumps. As an optional extra, a dark coloured pair of jogging trousers and a school PE hoodie or jumper can also be worn when we are outside / during the winter months. Children must come to school in their PE kits on their PE days and will stay in their PE kits throughout the day.

In addition, the only jewellery permitted in school is a pair of plain small stud earrings.  If your child has pierced ears, then they need to remove their earrings on each morning of P.E.

Please note that staff are not able to remove earrings, so this will result in your child not taking part in our P.E. lessons and an alternative task will be provided for the child, this is due to health and safety reasons.

Long hair must be tied back.

Please ensure your child wears their PE kit on their PE days.  If your child does not come to school in their P.E. kit, you may receive a text message to inform you that they need it for the following week.  All P.E. kit and School uniform must be labelled clearly with your child’s name.  If it becomes lost, it can then be easily returned to the rightful owner.
