Health-focused physical activity
Health-focused physical activity encompasses any activity targeting children who would not usually take part in sporting activities, but would benefit from being physically active.
Health-focused activity provision
- Do PE lessons and sport sessions promote healthy living?
- Are pupils given the opportunity to explore spiritual, moral, social and cultural development?
- Are respect, courtesy and positivity mutually encouraged by staff and pupils?
- Are activities offered which encourage participation by all pupils?
Types of activity could include Wake And Shake, Change 4 Life, and cycle training. These may also be linked to wider agendas such as inequality, obesity, safety, attendance and improving behaviour.
