Curricular Activities

Curricular activities are defined as classroom instruction in physical education and off-site trips involving physical activity.

Although the elementary level refers to grades 1 to 8 and the secondary level refers to grades 9 to 12, three activity pages apply to kindergarten: Wheel Activities, Movement Activities, and Playground Structures.

When introducing an activity that is not included in the Ontario Physical Activity Safety Standards in Education, refer to the safety standars of the activity it most resembles. When considering an activity that is not included in the Ontario Physical Activity Safety Standards in Education and does not resemble an activity in the Ontario Physical Activity Safety Standards in Education approval from the appropriate school board official must be received. Once the activity has been approved by a school board official, the inherent risks of the activity must be identified and minimized.
