Kennett School Rules for PE
- Long hair should be tied up.
- Children MUST please remove all jewellery including small studded earrings on PE days..
- If you intend to have your child's ears pierced, please ensure that this is done at the beginning of the summer school holidays so that earrings can be removed for PE in the Autumn term. This is essential for the health and safety of your child.
- Under the guidance of the National Policy from the Association of PE (AfPE) - The reason not to wear earrings (or any jewellery) is that it can lead to injury for the wearer and for others in the class and it is the teacher's duty of care that must apply here. The reason is both about tearing of the ear lobe, but also the post of the earring going into the brachial nerve which is running directly to the brain. This is national policy' Children who do wear earrings and are who do not take them out for a PE lesson will not be able to participate in the practical lessons, but will be able to take on the role of umpire, referee, PE equipment organiser and coach where appropriate.
