- A P.E. kit consists of: a white t-shirt, blue (or black) shorts, and a pair of pumps (indoor use) / sports trainers for outdoor use, which they should leave in school. As an optional extra, a dark coloured pair of jogging trousers and a jumper can also be worn when we are outside / during the winter months.
- If your child has pierced ears, it would be much appreciated if you could remove their earrings on each morning of P.E. Please note that staff are not able to remove them or cover them, so this will result in your child not taking part in our P.E. lesson 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 has a P.E. kit in school at all times. All P.E. kit must be labeled clearly with your child’s name. If it becomes lost, it can easily be returned to the rightful owner. If your child does not have their P.E. kit in school you may receive a text message to inform you that they need it for the following week.
