The PE Curriculum

During these really challenging times, Physical Education is needed more than ever. During Lockdown 1 only 19% of children met CMO guidelines of 60 mins of daily physical activity. It is also clear that Lockdown 1 had a significant impact on children's mental health. The Challenge for all of us now is to prevent any further decline in activity levels (at home and in school). The prioritisation of Physical Education and daily physical activity is vital in supporting children's wellbeing  through this lockdown.
