Physical literacy Continuum K-10


The Physical Literacy Continuum K-10 aims to develop teachers' skills, confidence, and knowledge in delivering engaging and relevant physical activity to all students. It outlines the knowledge, understandings, skills and attitudes regarded as critical to success and lifelong involvement in physical activity. The continuum maps how critical aspects of physical literacy develop through the years of schooling by describing key markers of expected student achievement. It provides a framework to guide teachers in evaluating students' physical literacy throughout their school years. This allows the identification of where adjustments can be made to help students progress.

More information—and resources to support teachers and schools to implement the continuum, including sample teaching and learning programs, guiding documents, illustrations of practice and professional learning resources are available on the NSW Department of Education Physical Literacy website.
