‘Off Games’ Policy
If a student is injured or ill, the PE Department needs to be informed of this with a letter from a parent or carer; this letter should be presented at the start of the lesson or before.
At Churchmead School PE Department, we like to think that there is actually no such term as ‘off games’, as we feel all students can be given some form, of PE related work to do at an appropriate level to their injury or illness. This can include observation and analysis of peers, scoring, umpiring / refereeing, peer coaching, flexibility / stretching work or participating at a level they feel comfortable with.
For the reasons listed above, all students are required to bring appropriate PE kit to suit the activity at the time.
This policy has been put in place so that all pupils are able to receive the best Physical Education provision possible which also ensures inclusion.
The PE Department would like to thank parents for their support.
PE turns to Social Media
The PE department have recently created a Twitter account: @ChurchmeadPE. This account will contain details of upcoming fixtures as well as revision information and ask the expert sessions. The department would like to encourage all students and parents that use twitter to follow this account.
