Notes on clothing:
Yrs 3-6 must have football boots/blades, shin pads and warm clothing (that may get muddy) for the field for safety reasons.
Yrs 1-2 football will be on the playground so they just need trainers and warm clothing.
I understand this may be an extra purchase and that it doesn’t guarantee a place in the team but we will be training until February so they will get good use of them. If unsure, I suggest buying a pair from a charity shop or ebay.
Yrs 5-6 just need normal, warm PE clothing and trainers.
In regards to footwear for PE; I suggest that we start to phase in trainers instead of sandshoes/plimsolls. Although plimsolls are absolutely fine if they have been purchased, I find trainers give better support, are more waterproof and have better grip.
Many thanks, Mr. Shillito (Sports Coach).
