A new Primary Literacy Framework has been produced by the leading charity the Youth Sport Trust.
The framework has been commissioned through a Sport England National Lottery award while it has been developed in partnership with a number of key sport and education organisations.
These include Sport England, the County Sport Partnership Network, the Association for Physical Education and sports coach UK.
The development of the framework supported by a number of National Governing Bodies of Sport and membership organisations.
The Physical Literacy Framework looks to provide 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 and 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.
