Analyses the issue of negligence liability in the context of sport with particular regard to Quick v Nottinghamshire County Council (County Court, Nottingham). Discusses the ‘enhanced duty’ owed by schoolteachers, limitations of the doctrine of in loco parentis and the importance of conducting suitable and sufficient risk assessments. Argues that considerable latitude should be afforded to the discretionary decision making of teachers such that there should be no breach of duty when the decisions made by teachers fall within a reasonable range of options. Submits that Quick represents a potentially modest, but important, development to the area of sports negligence.
