Those who provide sport and physical activity opportunities for children and young people – both in and out of school – will be increasingly designing them around fun, inclusive and safe experiences and working to offer a greater choice of sport and physical activity opportunities. We’ll be listening to and engaging with young people in the design and delivery of activities.
There’ll be a recognition of the benefits of movement on children’s mental wellbeing, their social connectivity and academic achievement, together with an increased emphasis on physical literacy: giving children the best start in life by helping them to develop the ability to move with competence and confidence in a wide variety of physical activities, as well as enjoyment, knowledge and understanding.
To support talented young people from every background to have a chance to make it to the top, there’ll be examples of cutting-edge talent pathways that are more inclusive and connected to the groups and settings in the communities these talented athletes live in.
The pathways will be person-centric, safe and supportive of athletes’ mental and physical needs.
