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.

Principal/Designate

This section of the Ontario Physical Activity Safety Standards in Education has been developed for principals/designates. This section includes the duties of care, checklists, and resources specific to the principal/designate role in ensuring the health and safety of their students during physical activities.

Please note: a designate can be a vice principal, another teacher or at the secondary level it can be a department head or athletic director. Based on school board policy/contractual stipulations that clearly outlines a designate’s role, the principal may assign a task to a designate.
