Motion by Councillor Laidlaw - Delivery of School Sports

Motion by Councillor Laidlaw – Delivery of School Sports

“Committee:

Acknowledges the value that outdoor sport activity brings to the pupils in City of Edinburgh Council schools and the measures that have been implemented both by the department, schools and national sporting bodies to allow for safe sport to continue despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

Recognises that City of Edinburgh Council schools have had limited success in restarting sport after the October break (as agreed by Committee) due to the reduced teacher resource available and crucially a prohibition against parental and external coaching through the Active Schools programme.

Notes that this ongoing restriction puts pupils at City of Edinburgh Council Schools at a notable disadvantage compared to their peers in the independent sector and may jeopardise their sporting ambitions and career paths.

Agrees the following:

1)        To reinstate the Active Schools infrastructure - to allow online bookings and relieve burdens on schools regarding admin, timetabling, risk assessment, payment, registration, PVG checks, insurance and track and trace.

2)        To allow approved parent volunteers and external coaching to delivery of all outdoor sports clubs while Edinburgh is under Level 3 restrictions.

3)        To put in place risk assessments for delivery of indoor sports clubs for any reduction to Level 2 restrictions, in line with Scottish Government Sport Scotland guidance - and Education Scotland guidance for indoor PE.

4)        For Sports Academies to return for netball, football, badminton and hockey in January 2021 and for solutions to be found for these ‘identified’ young athletes to train on Friday afternoons or Saturdays in Community Sports Hubs with external and specialist coaches.

5)        Direct and regular communication to the school sports community (including staff, pupils and parents) on how the above will be implemented and indicative timelines”
