Physical Literacy Programme for Schools (PLPS)

In September 2014 the Physical Literacy programme for schools started. This programme has taken the place of the old PESS programme. PLPS is a targeted intervention programme working in school from the most deprived areas in Wales.

Utilising appropriate interventions schools are looking to support young people along their physical literacy journey. At the same time these interventions are also looking to address young people's engagement in school, improve their self-confidence and in some cases improve their numeracy and literacy. A draft physical literacy framework has been developed. It is hoped that this framework will be adopted within the new curriculum from 2016.

The old PESS developed numerous training and support materials that can be used within the PLPS programme to support young people as they develop along their physical literacy journey. These materials can still be found on this section of the website - click here
