Challenge; Run in the Playground?

Active School week is looking for daily challenges. Here is a challenge! What are the results of the survey to which the Dept. of Education and Science committed in 2018 regarding running in school yards and what action has the Minister taken in respect of Insurance companies who continue to insist on this damaging practice? I asked a former teaching colleague the other day and I know this rule is still in place in certain schools. Now the children are obviously in pods for Covid-19 safety reasons so they have less space anyway but in some schools the children are all running around having a great time still within their pods. Will the minister commit to requiring school inspectors to investigate this and request boards of management to amend this practice.
