Attending P.E Lessons

Dear Parents,

We would like to thank you for your support with our drive to increase participation in PE which was introduced last year.

To confirm, if there are activities that your child is unable to take part in due to an injury, illness or medical condition, we will make alternative provision; such as asking the pupil to join the other PE group doing a different activity, or to participate in parts of the lesson where they are able to.

If your son/daughter is ill or injured and may not be able to participate in every aspect of the lesson, please send us a note – but they must still bring in their PE kit! The final decision on how a pupil will participate in the PE lesson will be decided by the PE teacher, unless your child has been excused by their doctor.

It is essential that pupils bring in their PE kit to change for all PE lessons. This means we can involve all pupils in PE, whenever possible. PE lessons are a statutory part of the National Curriculum and we would like to see all pupils participating… there are lots of roles associated with PE that they may still be able to take part in.

At Oakfield, we would like our pupils to leave us with an enjoyment of PE and sport, and an understanding of the importance of a healthy lifestyle, including participating in PE and sport. Information about our current PE kit can be found in your child’s journal, and it is also listed on our website. If your child is unable to bring their PE kit or part of their kit to their lessons, please write a note in their journal so we can lend them kit without stamping their journal with a ‘No PE kit’ stamp.

We have seen a great increase in pupils participating in PE lessons and appreciate your support with this.

Thank you in anticipation of your continued support.
