Dress for P.E
All children should have shorts and t-shirt for P.E. lessons. Plimsolls may be worn for dance and some outdoor activities. A warm jumper or tracksuit should be available for cold weather. Children in KS2 will require separate, suitable weatherproof footwear for football/netball/hockey.
For swimming lessons, children in year groups 5 and 6 require an appropriate costume and towel. For girls this means a one-piece swimming costume. Boys should wear swimming trunks not loose fitting swimming shorts. Swimming goggles may not be worn unless permission is given in writing by Parents/Carers. Under Local Authority regulations children may not wear earrings whilst swimming.
No jewellery may be worn at school. If your child has pierced ears, one pair of small studs may be worn. Under London Borough of Bexley regulations teachers cannot be responsible for either helping children to remove earrings or ‘look after’ these items. Either the child or the parent must remove earrings for P.E. This is both for the safety of your own child and other children.
