Physical Literacy

Physical literacy is the underlying goal of physical activity, it addresses the whole child and respects the learner as an individual.

Achieving physical literacy is a journey, students who make progress display motivation, confidence and physical competence along with knowledge and understanding to be lifelong participants in physical activity.

Physical literacy is crucial in the early years of a child’s development. It shapes their attitude toward physical activity as well as their self-awareness.

Physical activity is good for the brain.

Physical Education is valuable for students learning.

Research shows physical activity and excercise:

  • Improves students concentration and attention.
  • Develops students cognitive control.
  • Enhances on-task behaviour.
  • Grows new brain cells in the learning centre of the brain.
  • Gets oxygen and glucose to the brain faster.
