PE Extra-Curricular Sporting Activities
The P.E. department at SWCHS runs an extensive extra-curricular clubs and fixtures programme. Details such as fixture lists, dates and team lists will be published on the PE noticeboards within school, and it is the responsibility of all students to check these boards regularly to keep you informed.
It is essential that students wear gum shields for Hockey and Rugby and shin pads for Football and Hockey.
For away fixtures, travel is usually by coach or minibus. Students will return to school after the event. If there is any delay to the return, students will be advised to contact their parents to advise them of the revised expected time of return to SWCHS.
Please note that all national sporting bodies give school activities (not just sporting ones) priority over club activities. For example, Football Association Rule 4 requires that this is included in all League regulations. This is rarely a problem, but it should help avoid putting students in unnecessary conflict with the variety of school activities that are available.
Very occasionally, parents may offer to provide lifts for their own child and others to fixtures or sporting activities – this is an invaluable service. It is important that parents who offer lifts hold a clean driving licence, have appropriate insurance cover and have a roadworthy car with a current MOT certificate. All these requirements are in accordance with national guidelines. Please note that the school insurance does not cover students travelling in private cars, this is covered by the driver’s individual insurance policy.
