Changing for PE and Games

It is usually normal to change before and after a PE or Games lesson.

PE or Games lessons usually require us to wear PE kit. These are clothes specially designed to enable us to do sports and other activities safely and healthily.

Changing for PE and Games means taking off our normal school clothes. We may feel embarrassed taking our clothes off in front of others. This is OK. Many people feel a little uncomfortable with this. Getting changed quickly and quietly helps this feeling go away.

Getting changed before and after PE lessons keeps us safe and healthy. Changing quickly helps us with any feelings of embarrassment.
