New regulations say schools can only provide PE outside and for up to 15 children. At best, this halves the amount of PE children can get, and with cancellations due to bad weather, and lack of spare teachers to look after the half of the class not doing PE, it means many children will get little or no PE. 

Covid regulations  have already resulted in significantly reduced physical activity for children over the last 6 months. Physical activity is vital for children's healthy physical development as well as having a huge positive impact on their mental health. 

We want the NI Executive to amend the regulations so children can do PE inside or outside in full classes, following social distancing guidelines and taking any other appropriate measures to reduce risks of Covid transmission.

School principals, teachers and support staff have been doing a terrific job of keeping the school environment low risk while also allowing our children some normality in their lives- let them carry on doing this.
