PE Kit

Every child in Well Lane should have a PE kit. This must be in school every day. It is compulsory. 

The PE kit consists of a plain white t-shirt (or one with the Well Lane logo on), navy or black shorts (no pockets) and a pair of black pumps.  (Trainers are permitted in outdoor lessons but not inside.)

Parents; each child needs a PE kit. All 3 items together cost less than £10 in most supermarkets.  PE kits are sent home at the end of each half term to be washed and must be returned on the first day back. Please ensure your child has one. Children who regularly don't have a PE kit will receive letters home. Regular letters will lead to parents being invited in to discuss why their child does not have a kit.
