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
