PE Information

Year 1 Blue have PE every Monday and Thursday.

The children can come into school wearing PE kits on these days.


PE Kit and Expectations

The following are our expectations in all PE lessons to ensure pupils participate in fun, engaging and safe activities:

  • Suitable school PE kit should be worn for each lesson.

  • It is important that children have suitable footwear (appropriate to the activity) to minimise the chances of injury.


If school kit is not provided, children will still participate in the lesson unless school uniform is not appropriate for the activity - children will then undertake coaching or officiating roles.


School PE Kit

  • plain white t-shirt
  • plain black shorts or plain black joggers/ leggings
  • trainers - gym pumps offer little protection in games sessions
  • school jumpers can be worn in colder weather - hooded tops or coats shouldn't be worn as they pose a risk in games.
  • woolly hats and gloves may also be worn in colder weather


All of the above items can be affordably purchased at Sports Direct, Primark, Tesco's or online at such outlets as MM Direct.


For Health and Safety reasons jewellery including stud earrings are not permitted.
