PE Kit


Plain black, navy or bottle green jogging bottoms/shorts, plain black, navy or bottle green top, plain white t-shirt and trainers.


Ear-rings and PE


This is now the advice from  government that we have to follow.


Ideally we ask where possible that children do not wear earrings to school, especially on the day they have P.E. to limit possible loss of them, however if earrings are worn, they should be a small stud that the child can take in and out themselves. They only need to be taken out for the P.E session, so for around 35 minutes. 


Please see below an extract from the local government that advises on why we have to adhere to this. 

Can pupils participate in PE if they wear Jewellery?
The National guidance has always been that no jewellery should be worn in PE and that includes swimming and physical activity. It is also not safe to cover ear-rings / studs / sleepers with tape. The reason is both because of the potential tearing of the ear lobe, but also the very slim chance that the post of the ear-ring could damage the neck which is where the brachial nerve is running directly to the brain. There are anecdotal cases of children wearing ear-rings / studs with plasters over being hit by a ball or coming off worse in a collision and having nasty injuries as a consequence.
Parents should be reminded that the school has the higher level duty of care and cannot be put in the situation of looking after their child without exercising that duty of care. It is dictated by national guidance and they need to comply. There have been awful cases involving jewellery in PE and physical activity and we are protecting against that happening.
