§ Lord Moynihan
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What advice is available for schools regarding the provision of suitable high quality physical education to obese and overweight pupils. [HL1920]
§ Baroness Ashton of Upholland
The Qualification and Curriculum Authority's Physical Education and School Sport Investigation—one of the work strands within the national physical education school sport and club links strategy—is identifying and disseminating guidance and examples of best practice to help schools provide high quality physical education to all pupils. A number of the case studies published as part of the investigation are designed to help schools address health issues including providing physical education for obese or overweight pupils. In addition, all modules within the professional development work strand of the national strategy seek to promote inclusion and the differentiation of provision to meet the individual needs of pupils.
