Pupils must wear clean, correct PE kit every lesson (even when ill or injured) so they can take an active part in the lesson and fully participate once they return to full health. This way, College uniform is not damaged whilst standing on muddy pitches and any illness won’t worsen as pupils will have dry uniform to change back into.  Only at the College’s discretion ie severe injury or illness, may this rule not apply. Physical education is compulsory – only in exceptional circumstances will alternative arrangements be made for pupils. Pupils will remain with their teaching groups and participate in the role of coach or official (scorer, timekeeper or manager) for the activity as is evident in the professional world of sport. Finally, non-participation due to any injury and illness requires a note, as well as kit. Any notes to excuse participation should be written as a letter and handed to your child’s teacher at the beginning of the lesson. We ask that these letters are signed and dated by the Parent/ Carer.
