Sue Wilkinson MBE, afPE’s CEO said:   “The self review tool will give you an aide to effectively identify the areas to consider, the suggested practice and the potential implications. Risk Management is something that the physical education, school sport and physical activity (PESSPA) workforce embrace on a daily basis. It is an innate part of your role. Whilst the pandemic is something we have never experienced before and has changed all of our lives, we must apply the same principles of risk management, in order to minimise the risks to protect the health and safety of all C&YP, as well as the workforce.”   “You are all outstanding, committed professionals who we know from members’ questions over the last few weeks, that your concern is to keep students safe and well. We also want you too, to feel safe, secure and protected as a workforce. Please do not hesitate to contact us, stay safe.”
