  • If a pupil forgets their P.E. kit they must borrow spare kit from the school. The school will not telephone home to get someone to bring the kit in for them. The incident will be logged on school records.
  • If a pupil brings in a note from home to say they are not well enough to do P.E. they should still bring in and change into their P.E. kit, as they will normally still be able to coach or umpire.
