As a College, we feel it is imperative that your child participates, in the appropriate kit, as fully as possible in practical lessons. When not able to take part physically due to illness or injury, students are expected to bring a note from a parent/ carer and change into PE kit so as they can still be part of the lesson as a coach or assistant. This will also protect their uniform if we are having outdoor PE lessons at that time.
Please ensure your son/daughter brings the correct kit for their PE lessons. Students without kit will be loaned clean kit to wear.
No jewellery can be worn for PE lessons at any time.
All girls and boys compulsory kit:
Plain black shorts
• College blue PE shirt with College logo
• Black football socks or white sports socks
• Non–marking soled trainers or gym shoes
• Boys: All boys require football boots, shin pads and gum shields
• Girls: Some girls will require football boots and shin pads, this will be communicated home at the start of the academic year
All students optional extras:
• College black training top with College Logo (available to order with compulsory kit)
• Plain black tracksuit bottoms with no large logos, piping or stripes (available to order with compulsory kit)
Personal effects, such as jewellery, including body piercings and ear piercings, religious artefacts, watches and hair slides must be removed by students to establish a safe working environment.
Long hair worn by both staff and students should be tied back with a suitably soft item to prevent entanglement in apparatus and prevent vision being obscured. Fringes must be able to be drawn back with a soft hairband/headband.
Nails for staff and students need to be short to prevent injury to self and others. You should not be able to see the nails over the top of the finger when looking at your hands from the palm side. For this reason, the policy at Sir John Hunt is that acrylic, shellac, gel and all other types of false nails are not suitable.
PROTECTIVE CLOTHING (Boys and Girls)
It is essential that an apron is worn in practical lessons such as Art and Technology.
If students are not in the correct uniform or attend college with hairstyles or body stylings that do not meet our expectations (as outlined within this section) then they may be taken out of their normal lessons to learn away from other students, or may be sent home until their appearance meets our expectations.
WHERE TO BUY IT
House ties can only be bought from the College. Other items of uniform can be purchased through the Schoolwear Shop, Mayflower Street (Tel: 01752 252025). PE kit must be ordered from Proserve either via the telephone 01395 222975, their website firstname.lastname@example.org or by post Unit 3, Dinan Way Trading Estate, Exmouth, EX8 4RS (order forms available from College).
Being fully equipped for the day is essential, please ensure that you have the following as a minimum each day to allow for the best start to your learning:
• School bag and Pencil Case
• 3 x Blue or Black pen
• 1 x Pencil
It is beneficial for students to have additional equipment in their pencil case such as a range of pencils, coloured pencils and pens, highlighter, protractor and glue stick.
It is not appropriate for students to bring scissors, correction fluid (such as Tipp-Ex) or a pair of compasses to College.
Failure to have all the correct equipment will result in sanctions.
