The school has sets of spare PE clothes to enable those who do forget their kit, access to the lessons.
Gymnastics is performed in bare feet. If a pupil has an injury to a foot, a letter should be sent in by a parent or carer to request permission to wear trainers.
For all outdoor activities, trainers are essential.
All long hair is tied back for PE lessons. There are spare bands in school to enable access to the lessons for those who forget.
Jewellery and personal effects
All jewellery, including earrings, watches, sensory aids and religious artefacts are removed before participating in a PE lesson. If religious artefacts cannot be removed they are covered with an appropriate band e.g. sweatband. School will supply sweatbands if necessary.
Clear expectations have been established with all children and parents about the removal of jewellery and management of the removal. Parents are asked to ensure their children come to school without earrings when taking part in any PE activity within the school day. If parents are planning to have their child’s ears pierced, they are actively encouraged to do so at the beginning of a summer holidays to allow time for them to heal (so that removal of earrings can occur within the academic year). Children that have their ears pierced within the academic year will still take part in PE but a risk assessment of the lesson will occur and limit their participation. They would then be expected to remove their earrings 6 weeks after the date of piercing (approximately half a term).
If personal effects such as earrings cannot be removed, the teacher takes action to assess the situation by making a risk assessment of the given activity and adjusting it accordingly. In some situations this may require taping over the item. The taping should be sufficient to prevent the stud post penetrating the bone behind the ear should an unintentional blow be received. Tape is not acceptable when swimming, where water can dislodge the tape.
Make-up, nail varnish, unusual styles (patterned hair styles) and dyed hair is not permitted.
