Returning to School in a Covid-19 World
As thousands of students and staff return to school after the summer holidays with social distancing restrictions and Covid-19 health and safety measures, it has never been more important to ensure that our school communities feel safe, with the health and wellbeing of all prioritised. The purpose of this blog is to highlight and explain a fantastic new resource that has just been released to support students wellbeing upon returning to school.
Complete Wellbeing Curriculum for Key Stage 3 & Key Stage 4 (11-16)
This New Wellbeing Curriculum resource, developed by Will Swaithes (The Learning Locker) and in association with Dr Liz Durden-Myers (PE Scholar), provides an excellent foundation for classroom or distance learning of essential aspects of Physical Education and the RSE and Health Education curricula.
Immediate priorities have shifted somewhat, and whilst we must ensure physical education is delivered in a practical setting as much as possible to develop physical literacy and a lifelong love of movement, with challenges around social distancing, changing room use and wet weather potentially rendering safer outside spaces for physical activity unusable at times, this resource is aimed at supporting meaningful classroom-based learning to deliver the broader aims of physical education.
Adversity has enabled us to seek opportunities to achieve more through the physical education offer – to capitalise on the unique learning potential of our subject and also help meet the Personal Development strand of Ofsted’s Education Inspection Framework.

This resource is flexible in its design and can be used in a variety of ways including classroom based lessons, home learning, material for assemblies and tutor time as part of your holistic PE / health and wellbeing offer. This resource will help teachers support their students in understanding and committing to key aspects of their health and wellbeing.
