Trialing wearing PE uniform for full day on days students have PE

Dear staff, parents and students
 

Thank you for engaging in the consultation process around the uniform. As a result of this process we will be making some changes to our uniform policy. The first change regarding our PE uniform will be trialed from Monday 24th February to the Easter break on 3rd April 2020.

During this trial period all students should wear their full PE uniform to school on the day their class has timetabled PE. The PE uniform should be worn for the full day when PE is scheduled on the timetable for students. This is a change from current practice.
This will reduce the weight of bags that students need to bring to school, reduce the need for storage space for schoolbags and PE bags and ensure that students have a longer time engaging in PE class as they will no longer need to change at the start or end of class. While awaiting our new extension including a new PE hall, this will also alleviate the stress on our limited PE changing facilities for staff and students.

For 1st year students the PE uniform must consist of the new crested school tracksuit top, crested full college tracksuit (top and bottoms) and appropriate footwear (any colour runners suitable for multi-sports).

Students in all other years can wear the new version as outlined above or can wear the previous version of the school’s PE uniform which consists of plain white t-shirt/polo (no logos), plain black tracksuit bottoms (no logos, no leggings, no sports tights), a crested black tracksuit top, and appropriate footwear (any colour runners suitable for multi-sports).
 
Students may change into a plain white t-shirt under their crested PE tracksuit top if they need to freshen up after a particularly strenuous PE class.
Please note:
  • If a student fails to present themselves in full PE uniform the student will be sanctioned in line with the college’s code of behaviour.
  • If a student presents in PE uniform on a day when they do not have timetabled PE the student will be sanctioned in line with the college’s code of behaviour.
  • Tutors will continue to monitor student uniform during pastoral care classes and are aware of the days when their tutor class has PE on the timetable. Referrals will be made through the code of behaviour as needed.
Student who have other subjects (e.g. TY First Aid, TY Drama, Voluntary work etc.) or extra-curricular training or matches should arrive in full school uniform for their usual classes and should make arrangements with the relevant teacher to change into and out of their PE gear/sports kit while attending the specialist class or the match/activity.
We look forward to your cooperation in this change as we wish to ensure that our school uniform continues to reflect the high standards we expect of our students.
Yours sincerely
Diane Birnie
