Notes to Parents, Guardians and Students about Physical Education

  • The PE department teaches inclusive lessons for students with different physical abilities. As a result, we operate an all change policy. If students are injured or ill, they should change as normal and provide a letter from a parent/guardian to explain any physical injuries they may have, and resulting limitations within lessons. For more serious or long-term injuries, a doctor’s note may be provided to make alternative arrangements.
  • All items of PE uniform should be clearly marked with student’s name.
  • Lost PE uniform should be reported to Form Staff and the Physical Education Teacher. Items of lost property can be claimed from the Reception Office between 3.05 pm and 3.15 pm.  Lost property can only be kept for a limited length of time and then it will be disposed of.  Students are responsible for their PE uniform at all times.
  • An item of missing PE uniform on three occasions will result in a thirty-minute after-school detention.
  • Failure to bring PE uniform without an authorised note from parent/guardian will result in a thirty-minute after-school detention.
  • No watches and jewellery should be worn during Physical Education lessons.
  • Hair below shoulder length should be tied back, therefore not interfering with practical activity.
  • Emblems of any kind are not permitted on any of the PE uniform.
  • Chewing gum is not permitted in Physical Education nor the school.
  • The Physical Education Department strongly advises students not to bring any valuables to their Physical Education lessons, extra-curricular clubs or when representing the school.  The PE Department cannot accept any responsibility for their safe-keeping.
  • Parents/guardians are requested to ensure all students are dressed appropriately and all PE uniform is maintained correctly.
  • Girls may wear black opaque leggings instead of shorts which can be purchased from Caseys with the BGS logo on (or can be purchased plain elsewhere), however they do need to be sports wear and fully opaque.
