Primary School Physical Literacy Framework

15 November 2013 Volunteering

A new Primary Literacy Framework has been produced by the Youth Sport Trust. The framework has been commissioned through a Sport England National Lottery award, and developed in partnership with Sport England, County Sport Partnership Network, Association for Physical Education, sports coach UK and supported by a number of National Governing Bodies of Sport and membership organisations.  The Physical Literacy Framework provides schools with simple, easy to understand guidance on how best to structure PE and sport provision to ensure every opportunity is provided to develop the physical literacy of their pupils.

Physical literacy is the outcome of high quality PE and school sport, it helps primary school children’s development as competent, confident and healthy movers at an early stage. It builds their motivation, confidence, physical competence and understanding of movement, providing them with better grounds to sustain their lifelong participation in physical activity.

The framework will help schools consider what appropriate PE and school sport opportunities they need to offer at each stage of a child’s development, in order to maximise the potential to develop their pupils’ physical literacy.
