    The Safety Guidelines are divided into Elementary and Secondary levels, each containing three separate modules:

    • Curricular – physical education program
    • Interschool – competitive programs (practices and competitions)
    • Intramurals – physical activity/recreation activities

    The Safety Guidelines include concussion protocols to help prevent and identify suspected concussions and manage a student’s safe return to learning and physical activity.

    The Ontario Physical Education Safety Guidelines are also available in French as Lignes directrices sur la sécurité en éducation physique de l'Ontario.
