The Association for Physical Education says “an inspection should be carried out at least once a year”. This guidance has been produced by The Association for Physical Education (afPE) to support schools in ensuring appropriate standards are met when Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity (PESSPA) equipment is inspected and maintained.
Do schools have to annually inspect and maintain their PESSPA equipment?
Maintaining PESSPA equipment prolongs its life, use and helps to ensure that safe standards are met.
