Stephanie Page started this petition to Reigate School SLT

During the COVID pandemic, pupils at Reigate School were permitted to wear PE kit to school on PE days to avoid gathering in close proximity and spreading the virus. During times with high infection rates, pupils were permitted to continue doing this to help stop the spread of the virus.

Now many restrictions have been lifted, pupils are expected to come to school in uniform and change into their PE kit in communal changing rooms.

We would like pupils to continue to be permitted to come to school in PE kit on PE days for the following reasons:

Limits lesson time lost whilst pupils are getting changed.

Reduces amount of expensive PE kit and uniform lost or misplaced at school.

Allows PE kit to be washed more frequently.

Eliminates anxiety regarding changing around others at a time when lots of young people are body conscious.

As parents of pupils at the school, we would like to propose pupils are permitted to continue to wear PE kit to school on days when they have PE.
