School Dress Code for PE/Games
The following kit will be required for PE and Games lessons:
Green Technical t-shirt (available from Moreleys)
Black fleece top (optional)
Every child will be given a CJS PE bag for their kits. The bags will be kept in school and children will change for PE. The will need a black sweater or the school black fleece for PE during the winter months.
Please note that, for health and safety reasons, teachers are not permitted to teach PE to children who are wearing incorrect clothing or footwear. We have to be very strict about correct kit so that all children are safe.
Specialist footwear for games (e.g. football boots) will only be recommended to parents if the use/expense is justified. A strong pair of waterproof trainers will normally suffice unless frequent practices and inter-school matches are arranged.
Children in Year 5 who have swimming lessons will be told about appropriate swimming kit before lessons commence. Children are all expected to wear a swimming hat for lessons. These are available from the office at a cost of £3.
Please note that uniform will not be provided as part of pupil premium. This is in line with Chellaston Infant School.
Please mark all items of clothing with your child’s name.
Children should not wear makeup, nail varnish or jewellery. Watches may be worn at parents’ own risk but must be removed for all sporting activities. Small stud-type earrings may be worn but the school will not accept responsibility where such items become damaged or lost or cause personal injury. Children must be able to take these out for themselves for PE activities (or provide surgical tape to cover them over) for safety reasons. Earrings must be removed for swimming in Y5.
Unmarked lost property is stored in school and disposed of at the end of each term. Parents wishing to locate lost items should report to Reception before or after school.
