star this property answer text <p>Swimming is a vital life skill, which is why pupils are taught to swim and about water safety at primary school. Swimming and water safety are compulsory elements of the physical education (PE) curriculum at key stages 1 and 2, which sets out the expectation that pupils should be taught to:</p><p>swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres;</p><p>use a range of strokes effectively; and</p><p>perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.</p><p> </p><p>We are making relationships education compulsory for all primary aged pupils, relationships and sex education compulsory for all secondary aged pupils and health education compulsory for all pupils. Schools will be encouraged to teach the new subjects from September 2019. The requirement to teach the new subjects will then follow from September 2020. Following a comprehensive consultation process, including both a call for evidence and work with over 90 stakeholder and expert groups, we consulted on the draft guidance and regulations in autumn 2018.</p><p> </p><p>The new subjects are designed to complement the existing curriculum requirements. Schools will be able to integrate health education with other subjects, such as PE and citizenship, where it makes sense to do so. As such, health education should complement what is already taught and develop pupils’ core knowledge and broader understanding to enable them to lead healthy, active lives. It will be up to schools to decide whether and how to build on the core swimming requirements in this context.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department for Education is seeing encouraging signs of progress on tackling obesity, with rates in children falling to 14% in 2012, the lowest level of child obesity since 1998. The Government is taking forward a range of activities to continue this trend.</p><p>As part of the new national curriculum, which comes into force from September 2014, the programmes of study for both physical education and science include content on the importance of a healthy lifestyle. All pupils aged between 5 and 14 will learn about cooking and nutrition, which will be compulsory at key stage 3 for the first time. Children will learn the importance of eating good, tasty, nutritious food at school and beyond through the School Food Plan.</p><p>The Government is determined to embed an enjoyment of sport and physical activity from an early age, so that children understand the importance of keeping fit and develop a lifetime habit of healthy activity. Through the primary PE and sport premium we are providing over £450m of ringfenced funding across academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16. This goes directly to primary schools, to be spent on the improvement of PE and sport to ensure that all pupils develop a healthy lifestyle.</p><p>The Department of Health is providing Change4Life Sports Clubs in 10,000 primary and secondary schools, which encourage children to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Schools are using their primary PE and sport premium to supplement the Change4Life programme and so far more than 225,000 pupils have benefited from that programme.</p><p> </p>
