Rules, Rewards and Discipline

Non-Participants in PE

From September 2008 all students who have short-term notes from parents/guardians excusing them from a PE lesson must continue to bring their PE kit and get changed. Students will be required to assist their teacher in the delivery of the lesson, while not actively participating.

Students who fail to bring the appropriate kit will be given a chance to borrow spare kit in order to take an active part in the lesson. Failure to borrow any kit will result in the issuing of a Red Card in accordance with school policy.

Students with long-term injuries supported by a Doctor/Hospital note will now be required to complete written work in the School Library during their PE lessons. This will give these students the opportunity to use the time effectively for independent research and personal study.
