Management/Staffing of Sports Activities.

As far as possible, the school sport staff will manage and supervise all extra-curricular activities. Where specialist skills are required or where a member of staff is not completely familiar with all aspects of an activity, coaches will be employed.

These coaches should be equipped to manage the age group involved and have the skills and knowledge required for that activity. Professional coaches will be used as much as possible so that they can empower staff and provide the learners with the appropriate skills they require at that level.

All coaching staff will report to the sport co-ordinator and ultimately the Principal

Participation
