PE Uniform

The correct PE kit must be brought to every PE lesson. If a student is excused from a PE lesson they are still required to bring their PE kit in order to participate in lessons, for example as an umpire. If students do not have the correct PE kit they will be required to borrow a PE kit in order to take part in planned activities. For cultural reasons students are able to wear navy full length tracksuit bottoms which must be plain with no stripes or logos at the teacher’s discretion.
