PE Expectations and kit

Teign School Physical Education Department

Every student will receive two hours of Physical Education every week.  Across the year a broad range of activities will be covered that will develop and expand across the school years. There are certain items of kit that we request students purchase to protect themselves and conform to the health and safety regulations associated with this subject. Where identified this must be Teign specific kit. Lessons will continue outside regardless of the weather so students need to be prepared with appropriate clothing. We endeavour, where possible, that specialist items are used across the students five years to make the associated cost worthwhile.

Curriculum plans and up to date extra-curricular timetables will all be displayed on our website.

Department Expectations

Students have a maximum of 7 minutes to change at the beginning and end of each lesson. If this is something your child struggles with it would be worth practicing at home over the holidays.  Mobile phones are to remain in their bags and turned off when in the changing rooms. No jewellery is to be worn for any PE lessons (taping of piercings is strictly not acceptable). Hair needs to be tied back & loose strands pinned away from the face.

If a student is ill or injured and therefore not taking part in PE they require parent consent either in the form of a letter or a note in the planner. If the injury is serious or long term a letter from the GP, Consultant or Physiotherapist will be required.

Students need to bring and wear their full PE kit every lesson, even if not physically participating. This ensures their uniform remains clean and dry for the rest of the day and enables them to still participate in their learning and development in other ways.

If any item of required PE kit is missing (this includes appropriate PE or plain white socks) or if a student fails to tie up their hair or remove their jewellery prior to the start of the lesson they will receive a kit mark. The first kit mark is a warning. Any further kit marks across the term will result in a lunch time pastoral detention. These will reset each term. These high expectations enable us to teach more effective and higher quality lessons with less wasted time.



We are very fortunate as a school to have good resources and access to multiple opportunities for our students. We are hopeful that every student will find at least one lunch time or after school club to get involved in. If not we would like to know what we can offer to change this.
