PE CHANGING POLICY

Our changing policy for PE is the one recommended by Hampshire County Council. Children will change together because we have no separate changing facilities. Therefore when changing for PE:

  • We encourage girls to wear crop tops and modest (shorts style) underwear on days they are timetabled for PE.
  • Where changing may become an issue as children get older in the Upper School the children can use screening within the classroom. In using this it displays trust in the children and there is an emphasis on self discipline relevant to their maturity. We reserve the right to withdraw this facility.
  • If more than one class is changing at the same time we can use separate classrooms for different groups. This can only be operated if lessons are held at exactly the same time.
