Health and safety equipment

The school’s policy on the health and safety of all students taking part in PE and sport within school during lessons, at lunchtime clubs and in practices and matches after school follows the recommendations set out by the various sporting governing bodies and the guidelines of the British Association of Advisers and Lecturers in Physical Education handbook.

For rugby, it is compulsory to wear rugby safety studs in boots when taking part (these are available at a small cost from all sports shops). Moulded studs or blades are fine to wear. It is recommended to wear a gum shield. If students want shoulder pads and other protective clothing it must be clearly labelled with an ‘IRB’ (International Rugby Board) approved label sewn into the clothing.

For football, it is compulsory to wear shin pads.

For hockey, it is compulsory to wear shin pads and recommended to wear a gumshield.
