A set of nationally recognised professional standards for those coaching children have been established by the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) on behalf of Sport England.

  • The Minimum Deployment Requirements have been developed to help drive the quality of coaching delivered to children. We would encourage schools and partners to support coaches to access further training that would allow them to go beyond minimum requirements and meet the additional recommendations laid out here.
  • These professional standards will help support the requirement for coaches to demonstrate the knowledge, skills and behaviours to work with this age group and in this environment. School leaders must ensure that coaches have the technical expertise for each activity they are delivering.
  • Out of hours activities delivered directly by school staff or on behalf of the school are the responsibility of the Headteacher and governing body.
  • Headteachers always need to ensure they are complying with their employers requirements regarding qualifications and evidence of coach competence. This will necessitate working to the employers minimum operating standards, which all coaches must meet.
