As you already know, we have taken the decision not to ask students to get changed for PE at school. This is to reduce the likelihood of close interactions between students in the changing rooms. In conjunction with our other COVID safe behaviours this will help keep the school as safe as possible whilst delivering as normal a curriculum as possible.
What can be worn as PE Kit?
On the day that they have PE, children can come to school in their normal Holmes Chapel PE kit. This includes the Holmes Chapel PE track pants for boys and Holmes Chapel PE kit for girls.
Can My child wear their own joggers and tops?
No. All items of PE kit worn must be our standard Holmes Chapel kit. No other personal PE kit of any kind is acceptable.
What if it is very wet weather?
If students wish to, on the day that they have PE it is ok for them to bring their normal school uniform in their bag. For these children, the PE team will adjust their lessons so that there is time for them to change in as safe a way as possible.
In the case of prolonged and particularly bad weather and where possible, the PE team will adjust the curriculum to favour activities where there is more shelter.
As with all of our current arrangements, the position for PE will be reviewed on a fortnightly cycle and parents informed if there are any changes to the above information
This information will also be posted on the school website under the return to school tab
