All students at Manor School are expected to wear the PE uniform as dictated by the whole school uniform policy. We are fully aware that the weather is getting hotter and so strongly recommend that students bring appropriate sun protection and water to stay hydrated. We ensure activities led in PE are appropriate to the conditions with regular breaks embedded into the lesson time, however, it is unacceptable for any student to be wearing PE clothing that is not part of our uniform. This includes short black cycling shorts, vests, and T-shirts of any colour other than that of the top shown in the PE uniform policy.
The new PE uniform is now available to order (as well as standard school uniform items) and includes a thinner and lighter PE top, which was purposefully chosen as we are aware of the thickness of the current tops. Skorts and shorts are also available to purchase.
Students that are not wearing the correct uniform will receive a behaviour point for ‘incorrect uniform’. We must ensure that our standards and expectations of all students remains high and with this in mind, we thank you for your continued compliance and support in this matter.
