Children should not be sent to school in shorts more suited to leisure activities, shirts with slogans, or sun-wear. Pupils should be dressed comfortably and suitably to approach schoolwork seriously. Shoes should be strong enough to protect the feet and be able to be fastened firmly to avoid accidents. Strappy shoes or shoes with high heels should not be worn.
PE is part of the National Curriculum and is subject, by law, to the same rigorous planning and assessment procedures as other areas. All children must take part, be assessed on their abilities and have their progress recorded. For safety it is essential that children have suitable clothing and footwear for PE lessons and that they remember to bring their kit to school at the right time.
Parents need to be aware of the dangers of children wearing earrings for pierced ears when they take part in an active curriculum which includes PE and swimming. If children wear earrings to school teachers will not be responsible for their removal, replacement or storage. Recognised safety regulations state that all jewellery should be removed for PE and swimming so children must be able to remove earrings themselves.
All clothing which is likely to be removed should be named. We endeavour to keep track of lost property, but cannot spare time to search for garments which are not named. There is a lost property box in each cloakroom.
