Please find below up to date guidance and advice for schools and school staff on COVID-19 safe Physical Education and School Sport from national partners including the Association of Physical Education (AfPE) and the Youth Sport Trust (YST).
This page will be updated regularly with up-to-date guidance as and when it is released.
Please feel free to share any best practice with us so that we can share with the wider network via this page.
The Department for Education has confirmed with afPE that from Wednesday 2nd December, when the lockdown has been lifted, and we move to the tiered system, their previous guidance for schools will come back into force. Access it HERE.
Please note, a new sentence has been added to the guidance, highlighted below, to help clarify the role of team sport activities in PE.
Schools can hold PE lessons indoors, including those that involve activities related to team sports, for example practising specific techniques, within their own system of controls.
