PE at Greenhill
A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.
Long hair should be tied back away from your face. Hair clips used if necessary.
Any jewellery, such as earrings or necklaces, should be taken off before the PE lesson. If earrings cannot be taken out, then they should be covered with tape or plasters at home.
Children should wear a plain T-shirt in their house colour, a plain long sleeved top can be worn underneath in colder months.
Jackets and jumpers should be plain black and unbranded. School jumpers or cardigans can also be worn.
Trousers can be jogging bottoms or leggings, but again need to be plain and unbranded. Children can wear tights underneath in colder months, however they will need to be able to take them off for lessons where shoes and socks are removed.
Trainers need to be suitable for the child. Children will be required to do physical exercise so correct fitting and comfortable trainers are required. No boots or strappy shoes. If your child cannot tie laces, we recommend velcro or slip-on trainers.
Swimming uniform consists of a towel, trunks or one piece swimming costume, and goggles if preferred. Again, hair must be tied back and jewellery removed.
It is likely that your child may get muddy when taking part in sports, please don’t wear anything you do not want getting muddy. If uniform is incorrect, it may stop your child from being allowed to join in.
