PE Kit

All students are expected to arrive to every PE lesson with their PE kit.  Those students with an injury and/or a parental note are still expected to wear a CNS PE kit and take part in the lesson, even if only in a coaching or officiating capacity.

If a student arrives at their lesson without their kit, they will be expected to borrow a yellow CNS PE Department kit.

If students are injured, they can still be a part of the lesson as:

  • Referee
  • Coach
  • Choreographer
  • An observer
  • An organiser


Any parents or carers who have difficulty in meeting the cost of a school uniform should contact their pastoral manager. Financial help may be available.
