Importance of Physical Education, School Sport & Physical Activity Resources
The Association for Physical Education (afPE) has been commissioned by Sport England to produce resources comprising a poster highlighting the difference that physical education can make to the pupils in your school and an information leaflet for parents/carers outlining the importance of children and young people being active. afPE recognises how important children and young people’s physical health and emotional well-being are and the relationship between these and academic achievement.

These complimentary resources promote the benefits of physical education, school sport and physical activity and will help implement recommendations from the following national strategies:

- Towards an Active Nation, Sport England
- Education Excellence Everywhere, Department for Education
- Sporting Future, HM Government
The resources were posted out to EVERY school in England (for the attention of the Headteacher) on 1st December 2016.
Please display the poster in a prominent location within your school and share the leaflet with parents/carers.
afPE hopes that you will find these resources helpful in promoting the benefits of physical education, school sport and physical activity for all young people.
