The Ministry of Education develops curriculum policy for all publicly funded schools in Ontario, then school boards and schools implement it. Curriculum policy documents identify what students must know and be able to do at the end of every grade or course in every subject.
The updated Health and Physical Education curriculum, Grades 1 to 8 and Grades 9 to 12, were released in 2015 and are available on the curriculum page of the website.
Parent materials have been developed to help parents better understand what their child is learning and to help educators, parents and communities work together to support the health and well-being of children and youth.
These guides are available in English, French, Polish, Urdu, Punjabi, Arabic, Chinese Traditional, Chinese Simplified, and Farsi.
Because French is one of Canada's two official languages, students in Ontario's publicly funded English-language schools are required to study French. Find out more about studying French in English-language schools.
French-language education in Ontario is much more than “the curriculum in French.” The province's Francophone community looks to its schools to protect, transmit and enhance French language and culture. Learn more about French-language Education.
