Pupils down to un­der­pants for PE les­son

The Daily Telegraph - - News -

 A coun­cil has de­fended a school’s de­ci­sion to al­low chil­dren who for­got their PE kits to take part while wear­ing their un­der­pants.

The mother of a fe­male pupil at Sir Alexan­der Flem­ing Pri­mary School, Telford, com­plained about the de­ci­sion.

Jan Cousins, head teacher, said: “There were many chil­dren who had no PE kit on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon. These chil­dren were given the op­tion of re­main­ing in class or for health and safety rea­sons re­mov­ing their trousers and shoes in or­der to take part.”

Telford and Wrekin coun­cil said: “I un­der­stand that all the pupils con­cerned en­joyed the les­son. There is no na­tional guid­ance on the sub­ject, but prag­matic de­ci­sions like this are taken ev­ery day in schools up and down the coun­try.”
