PE Kit


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


Lessons may be taking place outside please ensure that pupils have trainers and jogging bottoms/jumpers.


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.)


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.
