You must refer to the Requirements for All Sport and Physical Activity (PDF 466KB) to understand your overall compliance responsibilities. The information below is additional only.

External providers

When non-staff members are involved in school sports or activities, the school retains responsibility for supervision and a duty of care of students. It is not necessary for the activity to be conducted on school premises for these conditions to apply.

Principals should also clarify for parents (or other stakeholders) when an external provider or non-staff member will lead an activity.

The Premier’s Council for Active Living has developed a set of guidelines for School Principals using external providers for physical activity and sport in school settings. These Guidelines can be downloaded from the following link - Guidelines for Guidelines for using External Providers for Physical Education and School Sport (PDF 244KB).
