The evidence review aimed to summarise contemporary physical literacy literature. Specifically, the review addressed the following research questions:

  1. How is physical literacy defined nationally and internationally? 
  2. What are the components/elements of physical literacy?
  3. What are the key philosophies, concepts, and principles that underpin physical literacy? 
  4. Are there any benefits/outcomes of physical literacy, and what is the quality of this evidence?
