PE Winter Clothing Notice
With our magnificent new facilities and our all-weather surfaces, we are able to go outdoors for the vast majority of lessons. Students are expected to wear the Academy PE kit (as per the Uniform Policy), even if they are excused or not taking part; this prevents their normal Academy uniform from getting wet when going outside. In addition to this, students are allowed to wear plain jumpers (no hoodies) and an appropriate coat.
Update on PE Kit (25 Feb 2014)
We have managed to source and now offer sweatshirts and waterproof raincoats as an optional addition to our standard Physical Education kit.
Using our current supplier, we now offer a College logo sporting sweatshirt that can be worn over the PE t-shirt and a waterproof raincoat suitable for outdoor activities.
You can order these from Miss Cummings at the Academy.
Sweatshirt - £12.50
Waterproof raincoat - £25.00
Please be aware that on the coldest of days, the PE department will be keeping the lessons as active as possible so that students warm up and stay warm by doing the lesson activities.
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 the Aylesbury Vale Academy, we like to think that there is actually no such term as 'off lesson', 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. Indoor lessons - tracksuit, shorts, polo shirt, trainers. Outdoor lessons - appropriate footwear, tracksuit, waterproofs, etc.
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.
