The result is an easy-to-read resource that will deepen your understanding of why HRE should be implemented as school policy and will show you how to design your own curriculum.

In Health-Related Exercise in the National Curriculum: Key Stages 1 to 4, you'll find a wealth of information on everything from basic terminology to effective assessment techniques. It also features practical tools to help you do a better job of teaching HRE, including ready-to-use forms, charts and 23 tables with information on

- HRE curriculum guidelines,
- learning outcomes,
- approaches to teaching health-related exercise,
- designing curricula and

This guide is not only complete, it's also authoritative. Author Jo Harris has played a significant role in the success of the HRE movement in Britain. From 1987 to 1993, she was active in the ‘Health and Physical Education' national project at Loughborough University, where she actively promoted the teaching of HRE in schools across the country. Dr. Harris has applied her expertise to this book to make it the best resource for teachers who want to help young people enjoy, value, and benefit from an active lifestyle.
