A Report by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on a Fit And Healthy Childhood

APPG | Physical education | October 2016

Dr Lala Manners | ‘The role of PE in the curriculum for Primary and Secondary children had not been revised since 1944 – so there was a clear need for review and change.’ 

But – there is also a need to recognise that the EY has a major part to play in ensuring that children arrive at school as confident and competent movers, ready to engage in any and all opportunities for physical activity. Please read the EY section in this report – there is a lot of underpinning knowledge included, but the recommendations are sound. Also, EY has a presence in the Obesity Strategy section – again, well worth reading the recommendations.
