Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) 

In line with the Safe Practice in Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity(PESSPA) guidance, we strongly advise that the following Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is worn by students when undertaking the following sports in their PE lessons, as semi-competitive matches, and therefore contact, may take place:

  • Football, Hockey and Futsal: Shin pads
  • Rugby: Mouth guard

In line with this guidance, should you wish your child to wear PPE, it is parental responsibility to provide it.  Whilst we may have a small supply of spare PPE for any given sport, we are not in a position to guarantee its availability each lesson.

We would recommend that parents and carers ensure that any PPE that is purchased meets the British Standards Institute (BSI) and European (EN) standards.

To support parents and carers with information about when PPE may be needed, we will publish the annual programme of termly PE activities for each year group on this page. 

If there is to be a change of activity during a term and PPE may be required, we will send a text message to notify parents and carers of this change.

Uniform 'Swap Shop'

We would be grateful if parents/carers would consider donating blazers, ties and PE kit at the end of Year 11 so that the college can recycle these.  For other years, a 'swap shop' arrangement is in place whereby blazers that are too small can be swapped for a second-hand, larger size (sizes permitting).  We would encourage all parents/carers to participate in this money-saving system.

If you would like to swap a blazer, to discuss sizes and availability, please contact the Student Support Team on 01536 720300 or mail@latimer.org.uk
