Procedure if your child is unable to participate in their PE lesson:

If your child is ill or injured they must bring a note in from home.
If your child is unable to participate due to a long term medical condition a medical certificate must be provided.  This should be updated termly.
When your child is ill or injured, they must bring in their PE kit and get changed.  They then will be involved within the lesson completing worksheets, officiating and carrying out peer assessments.

 

Procedure if a child does not bring in kit for the lesson:

If your child forgets their kit, staff will provide the student with school kit.  If they refuse to wear this kit they will be given a St George’s afterschool detention.
If they then do not engage in the lesson, behaviour support will be contacted if your child fails to follow these procedures and then they will be removed to the safe room. 

         
Your co-operation in helping your child to take a pride in the neat appearance of the uniform and in paying attention to detail is much appreciated
