As per AFPE recommendations we are unable to remove or tape earrings for your children in order for them to do PE lessons. As such parents must remove them at home on PE days or children must be able to take them out. Taping ears is not deemed sufficient protection to the ear and can come off. Children therefore should not have their ears pierced until the 6 weeks holidays which would allow the necessary healing time and make removal for lessons possible. Any children who have not and are unable to remove their earrings will have to sit out of PE lessons and carry out written or evaluative PE related activities and will miss out on the physical aspects of the lesson.
PE is a legal requirement as part of the national curriculum and we believe as a school that it is fundamental to physical, social and mental wellbeing.
