Ofsted has published its research review into Physical Education (PE), the latest in a series of reviews into different subjects across the curriculum. The review draws on a range of sources, to identify factors that can contribute to high-quality school PE curriculum, assessment, pedagogy and systems. This understanding of subject quality will be used to examine how PE is taught in England’s schools, and a report will be published to illustrate what has been learnt and shared with others
The report states that high-quality PE is an entitlement for all pupils, regardless of their starting points or their prior experiences of sport and physical activity. It also recognises that PE can make valuable contributions to pupils’ personal development and that through the careful selection and sequencing of curriculum content that develops pupils’ competence, more pupils can believe that PE is for them and inequalities can be reduced.
