For any key worker whose child is not currently using our childcare facility, and who subsequently becomes unable to provide childcare at home –  you must give the school 24 hours’ notice that you need to use this provision so that we can provide appropriate staffing. This means emailing or calling 03333 602130 by 9am the day before. For Monday provision, please ensure that you contact the school by 9am on the preceding Friday.  Students arriving without giving 24 hours’ notice may be turned away if we do not have adequate staffing. To access this provision, you must also have downloaded and completed the form that can be found here and you must bring it with you to the school when you arrive.

PE Department Expectations

PE Department Expectations

Indoor PE kit: Indoor polo shirt, Holcombe PE shorts and trainers.


Outdoor PE kit: Outdoor rugby top, Holcombe shorts, long socks, shin pads, trainers/ moulded boots, tracksuit (optional).


Failure to have the complete kit, including the appropriate footwear and shin pads, will result in the following sanctions:

  • 1st occasion of the academic year = Break/lunch detention
  • 2nd occasion of the academic year = 1 hour after school
  • 3rd occasion of the academic year= 1 hour after school & contact home
  • 4th + occasion of the academic year = 2 hour after school

If students are unable to take an active part in the lesson (through injury/illness etc) parents should contact the PE department, ideally through a note in the students’ planner.

If students do not have access to the correct kit they should bring an alternative suitable kit, along with a note from parents.


The Curriculum plan is shown on Show My Homework for students and parents as well as a copy in the PE department. Students should check this regularly so that they know which kit is required.

Lessons with a yellow highlight only will be at Holcombe for either Hockey or Football so would need outdoor kit with shin pads and trainers.

Onsite football (white highlight) would require moulded boots and shin pads.


Should you have any questions regarding kit or any other aspect of PE at Holcombe please contact Mr Nanson (
