Introduction

Research from Sport England’s Active Lives survey shows that physical literacy is vitally important to children and young people’s physical activity levels. Furthermore, the UK Government has stated that physical literacy will be a key principle underpinning any new national sport plan and is a key focus for physical education.

Yet the term ‘physical literacy’ will, and can, mean different things to different people and organisations.

This project aims to create a universal definition of physical literacy in England to hopefully catalyse efforts to adopt, support and promote physical literacy in practice.

We want to create a universal definition, but we can't do it without your help.  Therefore, our approach seeks to actively engage with stakeholders across sport, activity, education, health, community, and wider sectors.
