There is an expectation that all students bring the correct PE kit to all PE lessons without fail. If a student is injured or unwell they are required to bring a note and their kit. They will be taking on a different role within the lesson so that they avoid any further injury. They will still be expected to change into their kit and will be involved in the lesson in an alternative capacity to ensure that they continue to make progress.



Mobile Phones, MP3 Players, Smart Watches and Tablets:

Whilst the Academy accepts that mobile phones and other electronic devices are now part of everyday life, we strongly discourage students from bringing them to school.

The Academy has banned electronic devices (including mobile phones) as they disrupt learning, hamper student progress and can cause conflict.
