Physical Literacy Programme for Schools
This project involved the evaluation of the Physical Literacy Programme for Schools and Physical Literacy Framework in schools across Wales.
The evaluation considered the impact of bespoke interventions and provided an overarching survey to assess programme outcomes. It also included the creation of 24 interactive case studies that highlight where initiatives had been used effectively to develop young people, enhance pedagogy, impact on whole school agenda and promote parental and community engagement.
- Case studies highlight the importance of understanding and prioritising the child’s stage of development as opposed to their age so that initiatives are accessible and engaging and progression is tracked and planned effectively.
- Training and support can develop a confident and motivated practitioner who is able to positively influence the development of the ‘whole’ child.
- Strong inter-school partnerships coupled with training young leaders and empowering learners can help tackle educational differences caused by poverty.
