The PE Team would like to welcome back everyone to school for the new academic year. Mr Stephenson, Mr Wickens and Mr Irving have been working very hard over the summer so everyone continues to get their outstanding lessons and opportunities.
Our PE/Sporting clubs are scheduled to start the week commencing the 17th September so please bring back your club choice letters to the school office ASAP!
PE lessons will start on the 5th September so we would like to also remind all parents/carers and children of the PE kit that is expected in school. School PE kit consists of a plain pullover jumper (no hoodies or zips), a plain white shirt or RD badge PE shirt which you can purchase from the school office, plain black or navy shorts, plain black or blue jogging bottoms and trainers (no plimsolls or sandals please). We would also strongly suggest that everyone should have a waterproof coat in school, especially during the Autumn and Spring term as PE will still take place throughout the winter.
It is important that PE kit is brought in to school on Monday morning, and does not leave school until Friday afternoon at the end of the day. This is so your child will not potentially miss out on any PE time and/or events due to emergency changes.
Even though the following is not essential, we additionally have put together a list that we recommend children to have so they are ready for all different types of lessons:
- Shin pads (if your child is taking part in football club, then it is compulsory that your child wears shin pads)
- Football socks
- Woolly hat
- Winter gloves
Finally, the PE Team would like to wish everyone a successful year of learning ahead.
