Due to changes in Health and Safety in Physical Education, Revised Code of Practice 2016 from Renfrewshire council, Children’s services. I would like to take this opportunity to inform you about some significant changes regarding participation in Physical Education.
Health and Safety in Physical Education, Revised Code of Practice 2016
2.5 Watches, rings, chains and belts with metal buckles and other body jewellery must all be removed before the physical education lesson. As these may cause injury to the wearer and others.
It is preferred that parents are advised that any child having body jewellery piercing wait until the summer break to allow them time to heal. However, parents wishing children to wear body jewellery during physical education should write to the school expressing their request. Children will be expected to provide tape and cover any such items of jewellery during the activity. Pupils will be responsible for the safekeeping of jewellery.
2.9 Pupils will be advised that they are responsible for wearing protective clothing as recommended by the appropriate governing body e.g. cricket, hockey, fencing, football.
5.4 Extra Curricular Games
f. Pupils who are excused participation in physical education on the day prior to a game must have a letter of fitness to take part from a parent.
The Physical Education department would like all pupils to have a safe, challenging and enjoyable experience. With your continued support I’m sure your child will continue to achieve in Physical Education at Gleniffer High School.
