Important PE Reminder – Earrings

In line with guidance from the Association of Physical Education, earrings should never be worn during PE or Games lessons or matches.  There is a risk of earrings getting caught and earlobes being damaged or puncture wounds caused to the neck and this is the reason for the ruling. It is in the children’s interest not to wear them on the days they have PE, Games, swimming and matches.  To save the risk of a child removing earrings and losing them, or not being able to remove them themselves and having to miss a PE, Games, Swimming lesson or match it is best if they do not wear earrings on those days. If children do wear ear studs they must be able to remove them and store them safely themselves otherwise they will not be allowed to partake in physical activities.
