Dear Parents,

We are writing to you to explain how ERV and the Physical Education (PE) Department will work on your child(ren)’s return and ensure they return to sport in a safe and sensible manner.

Primary: 3 hours per week

Secondary: 2 hours per week

IB: 1 hour per week

As far as possible, lessons will be held outdoors using our new stadium and campus areas.

On a PE day, your son/daughter is permitted to wear their PE kit to school. Please ensure they bring a spare ERV Sports T shirt and a packet of wet wipes for hygiene. Students should also wear suncream, bring a cap and extra water on the day they have PE.

Changing rooms will be strictly monitored and students will be permitted to enter one by one to simply change their T shirt.

Showers will be available at break and lunch times. (Prior permission from the teacher will need to be sought and students will only be allowed in one at a time to changing rooms.)

Students will not be required to wear a mask where social distancing is maintained. (However, they must ensure they have their mask with them at all times).

Staff will organise sports where social distancing is maintained. (eg Athletics/Fitness/Badminton)

We want to reassure you that while Covid19 has been a disruption in all of our lives, We and the staff at ERV will do everything possible to bring a little normality back into every student’s life wherever possible. 

Thank you for your continued support.
