Ensuring safety in school sport and physical activity


Summer is already over so now my daughter is finally entering school this year. I already prepared for her school supplies, uniform, and early enrollment. I looked for a school that offers good academic teachings that could help my daughter in her educational milestones. But as a parent, I also want a safe learning environment that ensures my little girl's safety both physically and psychologically. 

In every school, children are encouraged to be more active by joining physical activities. A part of a school curriculum is the physical education program which helps develop a child's motor skills, physical fitness, sportsmanship, and competence. The physical activity is a way to help kids develop an active living. 

In the US, research studies show that most of the American children are at the risk of obesity. An overweight child is a result of not consuming a healthy diet and little physical activities. This situation also happens in other parts of the world including the UK. To reduce the rising level of obese children, at school, they should regularly engage in physical activities. The Daily Mile has popular activities to provide better health and fitness to students. While the activities are fun, there's also the risk of dangers to children if the environment is unsecured and they are not adequately being monitored. Injuries can happen in physical education activities in running, swings, playing sports or climbing frames. Because no one wants these to happen to any child, safety on playgrounds is being installed. Specially designed tracks are created by School Golden Mile to provide safe outdoor setting at school. A track or playground's surface or flooring can be customized according to your school's needs and budget.

We parents wanted the best education for our children, but their safety can't be compromised at school. As they learn new things every day, all we want is to see them arrive at home safe and happy. Am I correct?

  1. When my kids started school, I chose a private early learning institution. The class size was small so teachers would be able to effectively look after each and every child's safety and educational progress. When they got into 1st grade, me and my husband opted for a Catholic, co-ed, non-grade leveling institution. This is like assisted self study, which made the kids more responsible in learning. Best part? No homework. The school believes that all schoolwork must be done at school. The home is for family, not school work. Nice.

  2. That's so true, safety is the prime importance way above the learning and education. When my kids school people try new activities I look from all angles wrt safety. If I find any loophole, I ask them.

  4. I imagine it must be so exciting for you as the mother when your child finally goes to school. I love the fact that you research so much about it and look for the best school to do to your child. And yes, I agree that a little bit of physical activities are important. Not only for the simple fact of moving but also for the balance in the children's school routine.

  5. True, and yeah since obesity is a big problem a lot of physical activities should help. I also understand you being cautious on health matters - but honestly though I've never seen crazy big injuries in school. But it's always good to keep in mind.

  6. Children's safety at school should always be of paramount importance to parents. We have to ensure that schools are able to care for our children -- at play, while eating, inside classrooms. It's always best to choose a school that is not crowded so that teachers can focus on kids at all times.

  7. It's probably so exciting that your child is going to school but I totally understand and you worry about her safety. You can never predict their actions at this age. Wishing you and your daughter a happy first year in school.

    xoxo,

  8. I have been thinking about this more with my kids- they would rather laze around. Nope. Sports it is!

  9. Definitely correct. Because in playing there are learning too, and we can't - inevitably avoid our kids to play even in school - so better yet secure their place, for our peace of mind too.

  10. My daughter isnr at school age yet but I have been thinking about what would be the best choise for her. We are going on a long term travel so the first years she will be homeschooling by us. For us, at thatage we are not aiming to learn her abcd ect but more learn her to enjoy learning and want to learn. I think if we succed we can be sure that will stay with her all life and the actual part of learning will come natural.
