Nelson Mandela (25th May, 2000):

‘Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire.

It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does.’

 

The Importance of PE 

Physical education programs in schools directly benefit students' physical health. Getting the recommended amount of exercise combats obesity, which subsequently reduces the risk for diabetes, heart disease, asthma, sleep disorders and other illnesses. Regular exercise also contributes to cardiovascular health and promotes muscle and bone development. According to the National Association for Sport and Physical Education, school PE programs should require both fitness and cognitive assessments. In addition to participating in physical activity, students in PE learn the fundamentals of a healthful lifestyle, the building blocks upon which they can develop into healthy, knowledgeable adults.

Earrings/ Jewellery 

All earrings and jewellery must be removed for PE lessons, if your child is unable to remove the items by themselves please ensure that you remove them at home on days that they have PE.

If you’re thinking about having your child’s ears pierced, please bare in mind that they will be unable to remove the earrings for 6 weeks and will be unable to participate in PE lessons. Therefore we recommend that they have them done in the 6 Weeks summer holidays so that they don’t miss out.

Headscarves must also be removed for PE for health and safety reasons, although sports headscarves are permitted.
