All children take part in PE lessons and games. Those unable to be involved in physical activity, for medical or other reasons, should complete an 'off games' slip or note and give to the school nurse or hand in to the school office.


All children must wear gum shields for rugby and hockey (we recommend a professionally fitted gum shield) shin pads for football and hockey and the correct safety studs for each sport. It is particularly important that games kit is clearly named.


Children are allowed to travel home in tracksuit and games kit on games afternoons and they may be collected directly from Wyeside at 3pm if written notification is given to the school. All other children walk back to school for 3.35pm pick-up. If games have to be cancelled as the result of bad weather, information is posted on the ‘notice board’ on our web site and a message is sent via Clarion. Please check these before ringing the office.

School Teams and Matches

If your child is selected to play in a school team, his or her name will appear on a team sheet on the board by the lobby door on the drive of No. 28. Team sheets carry details of the opposition, venue, start times, departure and return times and kit to be worn.

When children are selected to play away at other schools they are always reminded that they are both guests and ambassadors of HCJS. Parents are most welcome to support both at home or away. Children are free to go after match tea, at which time you may take your child home directly from the match, in which case you should excuse your child from the member of staff in charge of the team. Otherwise, children will be available for collection on their return to school at the time stated on the team sheet.
