New Standards for Coaches in Primary Schools

Sport and physical activity sector agrees out-of-curriculum coach deployment guidance

The first detailed guidance on how the sport and physical activity sector’s professional standards framework will affect the deployment of coaches in primary schools out of curriculum time in England has been published.

A set of nationally recognised professional standards for those coaching children have been established by the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) on behalf of Sport England. More information can be found at www.cimspa.co.uk/deploy 

The Minimum Deployment Requirements Guidance factsheet has been developed in partnership by Active Partnerships, Association for Physical Education (afPE), CIMSPA, ukactive KIDS, UK Coaching and the Youth Sport Trust.

The project has been led by Sport England, with support from the Department for Education.

The factsheet provides headteachers at a primary school level with a “single source of truth” as to what qualifications and certification are required from sports coaches in their schools outside of curriculum time.

It also details a transitional phase from now until academic year 2022/23 as the whole sector moves to a deployment requirements approach based on agreed professional standards that have been created by the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity.
