Help Sport England build an understanding of Physical Literacy

Physical literacy is the foundation of movement, which is why Sport England are helping organisations working with children and young people to understand what it means and why it matters. 

The research shows that physically literate children are twice as likely to be active, have higher levels of mental wellbeing and feel their experiences are more positive. 

There are currently many definitions of physical literacy, so Sport England been working with a number of universities to develop a Physical Literacy Consensus statement for England – and they want to hear your views on the draft text.
