England Netball is delighted the Government has given netball the green light to return through a modified form of the game. This means young people within schools can benefit from the inclusion of netball within a broad and balanced curriculum and importantly the benefits this brings to children and young people’s well-being and development can be kick started once more.
Full guidance for any school (primary or secondary) delivering netball within the curriculum or as part of their after-school provision can be found here. This guidance should be used alongside the specific plans, policies and procedures put in place by the School leadership team locally.
Many schools hire their facilities to the wider netball community, which we know the Netball Family, are incredibly grateful for. However, we also understand that there is some nervousness about doing this more widely as both schools and netball re-start. To help this return and support those who operate venues understand the specific netball requirements; England Netball is hosting a series of forums for Venue Operators which schools are very welcome to join; we would particularly recommend this for School Business or Site Managers. To reserve a place please book here.
England Netball will, in the coming weeks, be in touch with all those schools who have previously been members of England Netball to commence renewing your membership. Any school that has not previously been a member of England Netball, but would like to join us can find more information here.
