PE kit


PE (Including swimming when appropriate) is a compulsory subject under the National Curriculum and pupils should come to school equipped to take part in all lessons.  If parents wish their child to be excused temporarily for health reasons, a written request should be sent to the class teacher.  Each child will require:

  • Plimsolls or trainers, 

  • Red PE shorts – no logos.

  • Plain white PE t-shirt/polo shirt with / without the school logo.  

  • Black Tracksuit top (no hoods) and black tracksuit bottoms.

  • Please note - only plain t-shirts/polo shirts or those with the school logo may be worn. 

Outdoor PE takes place in the playground or in the MUGA each term and plain tracksuits or jogging bottoms with a jumper (no hoods) are advisable in cold weather. PE kit should be worn to school on the days your child has PE. 

If you wish for your child to be excused temporarily for health reasons, a written request should be sent to the class teacher or via email to the school office.

Children should come to school wearing their PE kit on days they will be taking part in PE. All items of the kit should be clearly labelled. 


Jewellery, hair and make-up

Children are not allowed to wear personal jewellery such as rings, earrings or bracelets to school. In pierced ears, a plain round stud may be worn but must be removed for physical activities (including dance, gymnastics and swimming). If studs cannot be removed from newly pierced ears, children will be asked to cover the sharp point of the stud with adhesive plaster.

We do allow children to wear watches but they remain the responsibility of the child at all times.

For safety reasons, long hair should be tied back at all times. Only red or dark coloured hair bands should be worn. No extreme styles of haircuts or eyebrow shavings are allowed. Hair must be of a natural colour and not dyed.

Make-up and nail varnish are not allowed to be worn at school at any time.

Religious beliefs

If you would like your child to wear clothing or jewellery specific to a particular religious belief, please contact us to discuss potential issues of educational standards and security.

Make-up and nail varnish are not allowed to be worn at school at any time.
