Here at White Ash pupils take part in Physical Education and activities throughout the day during play time, free time, sensory interventions, school sports and PE lessons.
Physical Education is the planned, progressive learning that takes place in school curriculum timetabled time and which is delivered to all pupils.
Physical Activity is a broad term referring to all bodily movement that uses energy. It includes all forms of physical education, sports and dance activities. However, it is wider than this, as it also includes indoor and outdoor play, outdoor and adventurous activities, and active travel (e.g. walking, cycling, rollerblading, scooting).
School Sport is the structured learning that takes place beyond the curriculum (i.e. in the extended curriculum) within school settings. Again, the context for the learning is physical activity. The ‘school sport’ programme has the potential to develop and broaden the foundation learning that takes place in physical education. It also forms a vital link with community sport and activity.
