Second National consultation

Work package 5

Lead: Will Roberts and Dr Kiara Lewis

We want to create a consensus statement that is universal, accessible, and inclusive, but we can’t do it without your help. This consultation asks for your feedback on the draft statement developed by our expert panel.

Through this consultation, we want to continue to listen to colleagues from across the sport, physical activity, education, voluntary, community and health sectors. This includes partners, national and local government, thought leaders, and front-line practitioners. You don’t need to be an ‘expert’ in physical literacy, but an interest and passion for providing positive experiences for children and young people.

We particularly encourage submissions from colleagues who identify as belonging to diverse and underrepresented groups and communities, because we know that people from underrepresented groups are currently less likely to take part in sport and physical activity.

Please take time to read the provisional Physical Literacy Consensus Statement before responding.

The consultation survey will take around ten minutes to complete and includes a mixture of Likert scale questions and an opportunity to provide free text general comments.

Points to consider when providing general comments include: -

  • Any inconsistencies or disagreements with the draft consensus statement
  • Issues of presentation and style, including accessibility of the wording and ordering of the content
  • Whether the statement is appropriate across education, sport, health, community, and wider sectors?
  • Whether you think the statement is inclusive by age, gender, disability, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, and deprivation.
  • What, if anything, should be changed and why?

Take a few minutes to complete the national consultation survey.

The deadline for responses is midnight, Sunday 12 February.

Want to learn more?

We are hosting three webinars to provide an overview of the Physical Literacy Consensus Statement for England project and how the consensus statement was developed.

Webinar 1: Monday 23 January, 1pm

Webinar 2: Wednesday 1 February, 9.30am

Webinar 3: Monday 6 February, 7pm

You can register for the webinars by completing this form. Joining instructions will follow at a later date.

What will happen next?

All comments will be collated by the research team at the end of the consultation. Comments will be summarised and returned to the experts who developed the consensus statement. The expert panel will then consider whether to make any changes before the consensus statement is finalised for release in Spring/Summer 2023.
