The Physical Literacy Consensus Statement for England has been developed to facilitate a shared understanding of physical literacy for those working in the sport, education, physical activity, recreation, play, health and youth sectors.
The statement is intended for colleagues who work in policy, sport development, research and practice.
Physical literacy belongs to everyone and therefore it's taken a number of organisations to come together to help unite perspectives on it.
The project to develop a Physical Literacy Consensus Statement for England began in March 2022 and included desk research, two national consultations and the creation of an expert panel.
More than 50 organisations from the world of sport, health, education, academia, and community sectors came together to ‘unite’ perspectives on physical literacy.
This has been a truly collective process and the expertise, guidance and support of a number of organisations has proved invaluable in the creation of the statement.
Liverpool John Moores University led the work on developing the Consensus Statement and more detail on the process can be found on the their website.
