Earrings - PE and Sporting Activities

Essex County Council has informed us that school children are no longer allowed to tape up their ears to cover earring for PE or other sporting activities. This is due to injuries received by several pupils across Essex. We therefore now require children to remove earrings for all PE and sporting activities. If your child is unable to remove their own earrings then it must be done by a parent/carer before coming into school. For avoidance of any problems we recommend that earrings are removed on Sunday night and be put back on Friday evenings. Thank you for your co-operation in the best interests of keeping your children safe.

Swimming

School swimming lessons take place at Wickford public swimming pool, during school time, transport will be arranged and there is a small fee of £1.50 per session to help cover these costs.

Pupils are not permitted to wear any form of jewellery during these sessions and will be asked to remove any such items. Long hair must be tied up as all children are required to wear a swimming hat, a free hat is supplied by the pool.

Girls are required to wear a one piece swimming costume (no bikinis or two piece costumes)

Boys are required to wear short trunks that do not come past the knee.
