PE Reminders

Cold weather clothing

As the weather starts to change, parents/carers and students are reminded that wearing two layers for outdoor games is a good idea, i.e. a t-shirt/skin/thermal layer under a reversible top for boys, or a PE top under a fleece for girls. A suitable pair of gloves and/or hat may also be appropriate, especially for students who struggle with the cold.

Students unable to take part in PE

Parents/carers should write a note in their child’s planner if he or she is unable to take part in PE. Students are expected to bring their PE/Games kit to every lesson in any case so that they may be involved in the lesson as far as possible (e.g. umpiring). If it isn’t appropriate for your child to change into PE kit, please could you contact your child’s PE teacher to discuss.

Labelling

Please remember that all items of kit should be clearly marked with the student’s name.

Inhalers

If your child requires an inhaler for asthma, please remind them that it is very important that they take it to every PE lesson. If they do forget, they must advise their PE teacher at the beginning of the lesson. Spare inhalers are held in the office for emergencies.
