The key aims of the PLPS are to improve the health and
wellbeing of children in Wales, contribute to whole
school improvement (through supporting national
education priorities) and to encourage schools to use
more physical contexts for holistic learning. The PLPS
has been linked with the Welsh Schools Challenge
PLPS ERW team has been working with the 4 SCC
Schools, some of their feeder Primaries, and an
additional 4 schools to create bespoke interventions
that address key priorities (e.g. behavior, attendance,
literacy, numeracy and deprivation).
The Physical Literacy Framework (PLF) is a tool for
schools, staff, parents and coaches to support the
development of physical literacy. It identifies the skills
that should be developed during a young person’s school
life and illustrates the importance of developing
confidence, motivation and knowledge within the physical
domain. In conjunction with the PLPS, the PLF provides
practitioners with clear expectations that help promote,
inform and track the progress of every child along their
physical literacy journey.
The projects/ interventions are bespoke to the individual needs of the pupils and the school. We have attached some newsletters and power points, which highlight some of the interventions/projects that are occurring in the schools. It is important to emphasise that all partners including the school staff, pupils, parents and other organisations feel they have a voice in these projects and therefore there is a sense of ownership by all involved.
We initially require a meeting with the school Senior Leadership Team.
Collectively the children, school, community and parents will benefit from the project. Not to mention good fundamental movement skills are essential for maintaining a healthy active lifestyle and appropriate developmental learning.
