- Students are to listen carefully to all instructions from their teacher
- Students are only allowed to enter the changing rooms when instructed to do so and with supervision from a member of staff
- Non participants should make themselves known to the teacher and provide a note to excuse themselves from the lesson – No note results in kit being provided and/or a break/lunch/after school detention for 15 minutes.
We encourage all pupils to bring their full kit to each PE lesson as this will give you the best chance of learning the most you can in lessons. If full correct kit is not brought the following rules will be followed:
- Incorrect kit counts as a no kit so if one piece of kit is forgotten this will be recorded as a no kit
- If you are injured you must produce a note from a parent/guardian if not it will be recorded as no kit
- Students who have not brought kit but are able to participate will be provided with PE Department issued kit and a sanction will be enforced upon that student.
- Kit standards will be enforced by all members of staff
- Kit will comprise of:
Shorts –Blue Shorts -Blue
School Rugby Shirt (Blue and White) School Polo Shirt (White)

The following sanctions will be put in place by the department:
- Failure to bring PE kit or having incorrect PE kit will result in a 15 minute break/lunch/after school detention.
- Persistent no kits and non-participation kit will result in a phone call to Parent/Guardian and being put onto PE report
- Failure to turn up to a detention will result in that student being placed in an after school detention for 40 minutes.
- Students will be placed straight into detention for:
- Verbal abuse to a PE member of staff
- Failure to comply regularly with simple instructions
- Continued disruptive behaviour.
- Students should be put in detention using the following communication:
- Verbal warning issued with the reason, time and room, highlighted in their planner
- Staff should contact all parents / carers prior to their son/daughters 40 minute ‘after school detention’, explaining the reason for the sanction and seek clarification of future behaviour.
- Each time a detention is issued a note must be written into their diary and it should be recorded on Sims.
Pupils may attend lessons and be unable to participate practically in the lesson. This does not mean however that they cannot play an active part in the lesson and continue to improve their learning.
As a result when injured pupils attend a lesson they will experience one or more of the following learning tasks.
- Complete a worksheet on the lesson.
- Act as a coach/leader for a group.
- Assess levels of selected pupils with the use of the AFL criteria.
- Select pupils who have shown high ability or progress levels to receive achievement slips.
- Act as an official.
- Create questions to ask the group to test other pupil's knowledge.
- Depending on the injury and the sport being taught the pupil should participate in any parts of the lesson where safe to do so.
A non-doer should never be sat down away from the rest of the class they should always be involved in the lesson and should come into the teacher with the rest of the group to listen to teacher instruction.
All students are expected to conduct themselves appropriately at all times. This will include:
- Arriving to lessons on time with correct kit and ready to learn
- Listen to all instructions carefully
- Follow the instructions to the best of their ability
- When speaking to a teacher or peers speak calmly and politely at all times
- Swearing is not acceptable
- Respect the school environment and any equipment that they have borrowed
- Not intimidate nor show uncontrolled aggressive behaviour towards anyone
- Students should behave in a responsible safe manner at all times and think before acting
There are two sets of changing rooms for both boys and girls.
- Staff will ensure that the changing rooms are appropriately supervised at all times
- Staff will ensure that the changing rooms are locked up during lessons
- Valuables are not the responsibility of staff and students are solely responsible for their own belongings
- Valuables can be put away in a valuables box.
- No jewellery can be worn during lessons except in cases of a medical nature eg diabetes bracelet
- Staff will educate students on the need for good hygiene and where necessary allow students to shower
- Students are encouraged to bring towels, spare socks and underwear to lessons where they may get extremely sweaty or muddy. Spray deodorants are not allowed as they affect pupils suffering from asthma
- Long hair should be tied back at all times. Students should be encouraged to bring their own hair ties and boys should be no exception to this rule.
As with all physical activity, accidents are inevitable, but to help deal with situations in the best possible way, the following guidelines are adopted by the PE Department:
- Staff will have on record any students with specific medical difficulties that may hinder or affect students during physical activity
- Students who do require additional attention will be sent to the Medical Room
- First Aid kits can be found in the PE office
