The Ministry of Education and Sport New Zealand have collaborated to develop guidelines for schools and kura to consider when engaging external providers to deliver physical activity opportunities for their students. These guidelines have key questions for schools and kura to discuss to ensure that tamariki and rangatahi receive a quality physical activity experience.

The components to this document are:

1. Deciding to engage a provider

  • Questions to consider when seeking the support of an external provider
  • Questions to consider when an external provider has approached your school or kura

2. Responsibilities and role of an external provider

3. Responsibilities and role of the school or kura

4. Further information and resources

We recommend that schools and kura refer to these guidelines whenever engaging with external providers.
