Adaptation for COVID-19: PE Kit
Due to the pandemic, we are not allowing pupils to use the changing facilities in school. As a consequence, when pupils have PE on their timetables, we ask pupils to attend school wearing their full Gladesmore PE kit. Pupils in Year 8-11 will be given an iron-on badge which can be attached to the PE kit so that we can distinguish between the year groups to enable us to maintain social distancing and the integrity of the bubbles.
We know that some pupils are in the process of obtaining new PE kits. The PE faculty is understanding, and we ask pupils to wear plain sports clothing in the short term whilst they resolve the issue.
Uniform In Extreme Weather Conditions
It is important in extreme weather conditions we are safe and warm. Boots, trainers and sensible walking shoes are encouraged for the journey to and from school. However, Black ‘School Style’ Shoes should be worn inside the school buildings. Only in extreme weather conditions PLAIN BLACK BOOTS (no buckles) and trainers will be permitted. Pupils will be notified of this in advance.
Pupils are not allowed to wear:
- Hooded tops (should not be bought into school or will be confiscated)
- Trainers (except for PE)
- Coloured Timberlands
- Vans footwear
- Bandannas, headscarf, wool hats in school
- Fancy bows and hair accessories that are not navy blue of black
- Roll neck jumpers. If a jumper is worn it must be under the school shirt and plain white, black or navy.
- Large earrings (stud earrings only), heavy jewellery, buckled belts
- T-shirts visible under school shirts
Please note: nail and eyelash extensions and piercings are not permitted. This includes nose, lip, tongue and facial piercings and more than one stud in each ear. Pupils will be asked to remove these additions, in order for them to remain in school. Hair colour should also be natural to the child. Sanctions will be put in place for pupils until the issue is rectified.
