Sporting Injury - Return2Play

Return2play meloria group
At Watford Grammar School for Boys, pupil welfare both on and off the sports field is taken extremely seriously. Recently there has been growing concern over head injuries and concussion in sport. To ensure that we are providing gold-standard care to our pupils, the school has decided to partner with Return2Play, the UK’s leading sports medicine partners for schools.
Feedback from other schools and parents utilising their expertise has been overwhelmingly positive.

What do Return2Play provide?

Return2Play provide Head Injury & Concussion cover for pupils. This covers your child(ren) for 12
months whether their injuries happen at school, home or elsewhere.

Concussions are mild traumatic brain injuries and can affect a child’s physical, mental and emotional health as well as their academic and sporting performance. Return2Play’s cover provides benefits such as:
  • Unlimited access to the UK’s leading concussion doctors and experts in the event of an injury.
  • Unlimited online appointments at convenient times in midweek evenings and weekends, so that you don’t have to miss any work, nor your child miss any school.
  • Peace of mind that your children are receiving gold-standard care.
  • No delays in returning your children to sport.

What do you need to do?

There is no action required from you until such a time as your child suffers a head injury, though we would recommend logging into your account at and ensuring your details are correct.
You should have received login information and details by email from the school, if you have not please email
If you believe that you already have an account with Return2Play then please email and they will merge your accounts.

In the event of a head injury being recorded on the R2P System by the school, you will receive an email notification. This email will contain a link to book an appointment with Return2Play’s doctors via your account. Please book an appointment as promptly as possible.
Return2Play’s doctors will then guide you and your child through their recovery and any next steps.
Under the ‘additional recipients’ tab of your children, you can add the email addresses of any other individuals or external sports clubs who you would like to receive injury notifications about your child.

Did you know?

Concussions aren’t “sports injuries”, 20% are from non-sport incidents
Return2Play have seen concussions across 18 different sports, including non-contact sports.
25% of concussions at our co-educational partner schools happen to girls.
Being knocked unconscious is extremely rare and you do not need to be knocked unconscious
to have a concussion.
The school has covered 100% of the cost of cover for your children so there is no action required
from you to get cover in place.
We look forward to working with Return2Play and, in partnership, continuing to provide the highest
levels of care to our pupils.
