The school does not recommend any body / ear ring piercings as these may cause damage when young people undergo physical activity (PE, playground breaks etc). However, if a parent feels it is absolutely necessary for their child to have such piercings then when the child undergoes physical active these rings/studs must be removed or covered with a plaster. The school cannot accept any responsibility for injuries caused due to these piercings. We strongly recommend that before allowing their young child to have body piercings, parents think carefully about the dangers that earings can cause when young children are playing or undergoing physical activity, or even the issue of contamination or infection that may arise.
If a parent chooses to let their child wear piercings then only small studs are acceptable. (No hoops or drop/dangle).
To ensure the safety of pupils and staff, there will be some temporary changes to our expectations for PE. Following the guidance set by the government on the 2nd July, children will be expected to attend school wearing their PE kit on the day they have PE. The days have been confirmed for each year group below.
To further comply with formal guidelines, it has been strongly recommended that PE lessons are taught outside where possible. For this reason, we have introduced some temporary changes to our PE kit to make sure pupils are dressed suitably for PE.
Pupils and staff should wear clothes that are suited to the conditions of the environment and the activities undertaken.
The following clothes will be required for:
- Plain black/blue sports trousers
- Plain shorts (leggings may be worn underneath)
