PE FAQ

My child is not feeling well and they are unable to do PE, does she/he still need to bring in their PE kit?

Your child needs to bring their PE kit to every lesson. This means that she/he can still take part in some of the lesson in a different role. If the PE lesson is outside, it also prevents their school uniform from getting wet and dirty. Please send your child into school with some extra layers.

My child is involved in a fixture next week, what time will she/he need to be collected?

All information regarding the fixture will have been given to your child in advance. All details of any fixture is put up on the sports notice board which your child will need to check. The timings and location of the game is also on the school website.

My child is injured and can’t take part in PE, what do I need to do?

Please send your child in with a note regarding their illness/injury and she/he still needs to bring in their kit so she/he can take part in some of the lesson

What activity is my child doing in (PE/Games) after half term?

This information is displayed on the sports notice board. Your child will have to look at this and will be made aware of all these details

What time does football/netball practise finish tonight?

This information is shown on the extra curricular timetable on the school website. Generally practises tend to finish at 5.00pm but please ask your child to check with the member of staff running the activity.

My child has lost / had their PE top stolen?

The item in question will rarely have been ‘stolen’! It will have been misplaced somewhere around school – usually on a bag rack away from the sports hall. All kit should be named and usually finds its way back to your child via the PE Team or form tutor. Alternatively please ask your child to check lost property.  Students must bring all PE / Games kit home with them after each lesson, and so they should know which items of kit are missing before they leave for school. Please either send in your child with some spare kit in this case, even if it is not the correct colour (i.e. plain black shorts or any colour socks). Alternatively she/he can come to the PE office as early as possible in the day to explain the situation and borrow some spare kit, however this is limited.
