As you know, we constantly review our policy/procedure and change our practice accordingly.
We are struggling to find ‘bubble’ space for all of the different year groups to get changed for sports after school clubs, especially as we need to provide separate space for boys and girls in the older year groups.
As a result of this, we are going to ask that from tomorrow that children in Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 that have a sports club after school, come to school in their school PE kit. We can manage Year 1 and 2 children changing and therefore there is no need to alter anything for them.
The only item that will be permitted is a change of foot wear for eg. Football boots.
We understand that children like to wear ‘football strip’ type clothes for many of the clubs, but ask that they stick to the normal school PE kit please.
This new rule will not affect the gymnastics club and we ask that those children bring in their change of clothes as they normally do.
We are working so hard at trying to keep our ‘bubbles of children’ separate and we think this new rule will allow an increase in safety, but also more time for the children to enjoy the activity in the club.
As ever, thank you for your support and patience as we continue to do all we can to keep Covid 19 away from our school community.
