There has, for a number of years, been a focus on helping to narrow the attainment gap for the most deprived children. In more recent years, there has started to be a focus on the health of children and their lack of physical activity. More recently, research is starting to uncover the impact of sedentary lifestyles on children’s educational attainment and adult life chances.

This course will look at this current research and explore how you can support children to become physically literate.

The learning objectives for this course are as follows:

  1. To look at current research into the importance of physical development
  2. To consider the idea of physical literacy
  3. To unpick why physical literacy is particularly important for the most disadvantaged children
  4. To look at practical ways you can use physical literacy to support all areas of learning

This course will ensure your practice is in line with the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage, The Early Years Framework and The Foundation Phase. It will also support your continuous professional development in line with the Early Years Teachers Standards.
