Schools, nurseries and other education providers are required to provide children with accessible facilities for physical education purposes.
With the government’s drive to reduce childhood obesity, it has never been more important to ensure that children have adequate facilities in which to exercise during allocated school time.
Not only is readily accessible indoor and outdoor facilities beneficial for the physical development of children, it can be mentally stimulating too – as highlighted throughout The Daily Mile campaign.
The Daily Mile
The Daily Mile initiative aims to “improve the physical, emotional and social health and wellbeing of our children – regardless of age or personal circumstances.”This is why it is essential that education providers have quality facilities available.
Schools, nurseries and other education providers not only have a duty of care towards children but they all have to satisfy certain inspection requirements.
But it isn’t always easy to provide such facilities. Challenges that face many education providers include:
- Unpredictable and adverse UK weather conditions
- Muddy and messy environments
- Lack of funding which impacts maintenance costs / budget.
- Risk of accident and injuries to children
