As the new School year begins we would like to take this opportunity to remind parents/carers of our PE kit and explain about our ‘PE ready’ expectations.
PE will start from the 1st day back in school (Monday 5th September).
From September all pupils will be required to come to school in their PE kit on their PE days. Pupils are to wear an outdoor kit consisting of a royal blue t-shirt or plain white t-shirt, black or navy tracksuit bottoms or shorts. Pupils must also wear their royal blue school jumper / fleece / cardigan. Suitable trainers needed also. On days with bad weather we will may look to do PE outside so a rain jacket and spare trainers will be required.
Please could we remind you that it is essential for all pupils to wear appropriate kit for their PE lessons to ensure personal hygiene and safety.
During PE lessons children are not allowed to wear jewellery of any kind, including watches, necklaces and earrings, please ensure these can be removed or safely secured ready for PE.
Consideration will be given to requests for adaptation of PE kit for religious purposes, in line with the guidance of AFPE.
Kit should include:
- Royal Blue or white t-shirt
- Blue or Black shorts
- Blue or Black Tracksuit bottoms
- Pupils must wear their WPS or royal blue school jumper / fleece / cardigan
- Trainers and socks (This is essential for your child’s safety and they will not be able to participate without appropriate footwear)
- On days with bad weather we will still look to do PE outside so a rain jacket and spare trainers will be required.
New PE staff member
We welcome Mr Whadcoat to our PE team. He has many years’ experience teaching PE in other local primary schools and will be an excellent addition to our team.
We will be starting our wide range of extra-curricular clubs starting W/C 12/9/22 with further information with timetable and sign up instructions will be emailed beginning of next week.
Built in the PE timetable is a flexible day. PE may have to move days during the week because as a school we participate in many sporting events for our pupils to attend and compete in sports festivals. If a PE session needs to be changed it will be moved to a Wednesday and a text message will be sent out with at least 24hour notice when possible.
Thank you in advance for your support with ensuring your child is well equipped for PE lessons and we look forward to the impact PE Ready will make.
For further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Mr Marshall / Mr Whadcoat
