In the interest of hygiene and safety all children must have appropriate kit and change for PE. PE is done in bare feet as recommended by the LA PE advisor. Oakfield PE T-shirts and shorts and plimsolls (preferably with elasticated fronts for younger children) for outside work are kept in school in a drawstring bag. Children in Years 1, 2, 3 and 4 also need tracksuits and suitable footwear for outside games.
For swimming (summer term) children need a swimming costume or bathing trunks, a large towel and a pair of rubber flip-flops. Every person in the swimming pool must wear a swimming cap to prevent hair clogging the filters. Goggles may be worn for health reasons.
