Uniform & Equipment

The school uniform was designed with the help of our students. It encourages students to look smart and feel part of the Whitcliffe Mount community. The uniform provides an element of choice. Students wear their uniforms to and from school and show that they are proud to be ambassadors of the school.

All items of school uniform and P.E. kit can be obtained from our local suppliers:

Students unable to participate through injury:

  • Students who have a medical reason for non-participation are required to bring a note in their planner excusing them from performing. For longer term non-participation, a medical note from the doctor is required.
  • Students excused from performing are still required to bring their kit, get changed and take a less active role in the lesson (inside and/or outside). For example, by refereeing, coaching judging, analysing, timekeeping and helping to organise equipment.

Extreme weather

  • PE lessons take place outside when the weather is poor, or when exams take place. Pupils know this and must be prepared to get wet.
  • In extreme circumstances, a wet weather procedure will be implemented and lessons will take place indoors where possible.
  • Staff will use their professional judgement to determine whether outside facilities are appropriate and safe for participation and learning.


  • We recommend that pupils do not bring items of value into school, however we appreciate that some pupils may have a mobile phone, bus pass, house keys, watch and wallet/purse with them in school.
  • Whilst the changing rooms remain locked during lessons, PE Staff will give pupils the opportunity to hand in valuable items as an additional level of security at the start of the lesson. If valuable items are not handed in, we cannot accept responsibility should any issue arise.

Health, Safety and Personal Hygiene

  • All jewellery must be removed and hair tied back prior to participation in lessons. The school behaviour policy will be followed as this is a power of three expectation.
  • There is the provision for pupils to shower after lessons. We recommend this, particularly after lessons where pupils get dirty and/or wet. Pupils must bring their own towels.
  • Pupils are encouraged to re-hydrate after participating in strenuous exercise.
  • Pupils should be thoughtful of others and keep the use of aerosol anti-perspirants to a minimum.

Extra-Curricular Activities

An extra-curricular timetable can be found on our website. This informs you of when and where activities take place. For clubs and weekly practices, the ‘permission slip’ will need to be returned before your son/daughter can attend. This will only have to be completed once and will give permission for your son/daughter to attend throughout the year. This applies to pupils in years 7,8 and 9 only. Pupils in years 10 and 11 are expected to inform their parents/carers of their attendance. Pupils do not have to wear school PE kit for after-school activities, but what they wear must be recognised sports clothing/footwear.

For fixtures against other schools, pupils need to check to team sheet on the relevant noticeboard to see if they have been selected. All information regarding the fixture will then be found on the school website. On the rare occasions when clubs/practices or fixtures are cancelled, we will contact you text message.
