Safety Considerations for Physical Education at Home

For physical education at home please consult the safety considerations in Resources to Support Parents and Caregivers with Health and Physical Education at Home.

Risk Management

The following must be taken into consideration by the teacher/coach/intramural supervisor:

  • The activity is age-appropriate for the students’ abilities.
  • The teacher/coach/intramural supervisor has the knowledge/experience and certifications (where applicable) in accordance with the safety standards to teach, coach and/or supervise the activity safely.

Parents/guardians need to be made aware of curricular/interschool/intramural activities in which their child is to participate/try-out and the risks inherent in the activities. Parental/guardian permission must be received from each interschool/intramural participant. For a sample letter and form, consult:
