Please note:

As it stands, PE must continue to take place outdoors. The indicative date for potential changes to this, is not until the 5th October, and even then, there's no guarantee that we can come indoors by then. The temperature has quite drastically decreased over the past week, and some pupils are not coming appropriately dressed to be outdoors for some of the conditions we are experiencing. Please ensure where possible you bring additional shoes and jumper/rain jacket to ensure you are comfortable to take part.
