Swimming

Pupils will require a one-piece swimming costume and towel (no sprays, powder or valuables please). For safety reasons children are not allowed to wear swimming goggles or earrings and long hair is to be tied back. However, if there is a medical reason why goggles are required, then a letter explaining the problem should be sent to the school. If worn, goggles should comply with Leicestershire County Council Health & Safety Information circular, a copy of which is available in school.

Normal PE kit is required, the school will provide team strips where appropriate. To meet the requirements of the Football Association, football boots and shin pads will be required for any child selected to play in the school football team.

Jewellery and Earrings 

Decorative jewellery is not considered appropriate school wear; children with pierced ears are only allowed to wear simple studs.

Pierced Ears: The LEA Health and Safety directive requires that earrings be removed by the wearer before PE, including swimming. However, parents should provide micropore tape to cover studs, if the child is unable to remove them by themselves.

 

Hats and Sun Cream 

Sun hats are advisable during the summer months. There is no objection to children bringing sun cream providing they apply it themselves and only use it on themselves. All sun creams need to be labelled with a name and will be kept in the child’s PE bag.
