Jewellery and PE
Now that we are fully back in the swing of things and children are settled back into routines I feel it is important to issue a reminder on our policy towards jewellery and PE. Earrings cause us a considerable difficulty on those days when children are timetabled for PE.
It is not inconceivable that any jewellery, especially earrings, get caught in hair and clothing during PE activities. Such occurrences may cause significant injury to the wearer and those participating in the activities. There could also be cases where items of jewellery cut and scratch other children if worn during physical activity. If it is not possible to refrain from wearing any earrings on the timetabled PE days then parents should provide plasters to completely cover the jewellery so as to minimise any accidents. The school asks for parental support in enforcing these rules for the health and safety of all involved.
