afPE C-19 Interpreting Government Guidance...

The Association for Physical Education (afPE) have today published their self review toolkit for schools to consider as they begin to reopen.

Anna Clooke attended an afPE webinar relating to the guidance on Thursday 21st May and a recording of this can be found here; 

COVID-19 Interpreting the Government Guidance in a PESSPA Context

As we move towards the planned wider re-opening of schools and facilities afPE has prepared this document to support the Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity (education based) workforce.

Each school is different – some have been operating on a reduced pupil basis, in a different way, or the site has been closed completely. We want to stimulate discussion, allow schools to manage their situation as we know and understand that educational contexts are different in terms of the size, age and layout of buildings.

Leaders are reminded to always follow Government and employer’s guidelines. The ultimate decision about pupil safety will depend on context and geography, and is therefore for individual headteachers to make, in consultation with their governing body.

We know all colleagues want children and young people (C&YP) to be safe and well and it is also important that the workforce is protected and safe. Considerations regarding PPE (that have been available to special school staff and some mainstream schools, with pupils with high level medical and physical needs) and hand washing facilities must also be considered as part of whole school consideration around effective infection, protection and control.
