Recommendations to Improve PE in Schools

0 0

The All-Party Parliamentary Group for a Fit and Healthy Childhood has created a report, making several recommendations for the Government to reflect the work required to ensure that the vital importance of Physical Education (PE) is realised.

The report states that for far too long, PE has been regarded as the ‘Cinderella subject’ of the curriculum and is often diluted by education and policy systems. Key recommendations in the report centre around improving training for teachers, recognising and sharing good practice, curriculum development and an emphasis on the importance of physical activity from birth.

Key recommendations

Identify national and international examples of best practice to inform the national curriculum content and to produce a ‘National Directory of What Works in PE’.

Align the PE curricula between the four home nations and ensure the role of PE is recognised and developed within the health and wellbeing context of the curriculum.

Incorporate opportunities for training to enhance workforce skills by its inclusion in initial teacher training, CPD opportunities and improved placements for post graduate students.

Recommendations for the early years include new quality guidelines and Ofsted inspection requirements for physical development and physical activity, training opportunities for the early years workforce and a designated physical development/physical activity co-ordinator in every setting.
