The days are getting wetter, the nights are getting dark and the marking is piling up! It is difficult to find the motivation to exercise, so
why not take on the SLSSP Marathon Month challenge?
To mark the occasion of the London Marathon we are setting up a virtual Marathon Month. We will be challenging all staff in South Leicestershire to cover the total distance of 26.2 miles over the month of October. This can be done by running, swimming, walking or a combination of the three. If this is too easy, why not challenge yourself to cover the distance of 2, 3 or even 4 marathons?!
This could be for charity or a personal challenge.
Join the South Leicestershire School Staff STRAVA group for some added motivation! Click here!
Certificates to be awarded to all staff who participate. Participants will also be added to a prize draw to win Amazon vouchers!!

Resumption of Football
The FA has published its guidance on the resumption of football with effect from the permitted date of 29th March. You will find the detailed guidance here:
FA guidance for outdoor grassroots football return on 29 March 2021 (thefa.com)<https://www.thefa.com/news/2021/mar/24/fa-guidance-for-return-to-grassroots-football-20210324>
The guidance is written for clubs but applies to all football and you should read it carefully before planning your activity. In so doing, you will see that:
* Travel is permitted in order to play football, although you are advised not to travel at busy times or on busy routes. Whilst non-essential travel is to be avoided, it is permitted to travel to play. However, outside of the FA’s guidance, the DCMS guidance notes that overnight stays for the purpose of attending sports events is NOT permitted so please ensure you do not permit overnight stays before the guidance is reviewed on 12th April
* Parental consent is required for children to play football post-Covid. Parents are required to confirm they are content with your covid security arrangements and as such are permitting their child(ren) to take part. Please ensure you obtain these permissions before you play.
* You are required to complete a full risk assessment, including Covid-specific controls, prior to planning your events. You may find it helpful to share your covid risk assessment with parents in order to gain their consent for their children to play. You can find a template here
Please also look out for updates at each step of the lifting of lockdown restrictions, as the guidance may change at each review.
