Youth Sport Trust - Early Years Physical Literacy Framework

The Brief:
To facilitate the consultation and development of a comprehensive early years physical literacy framework to provide a national point of reference for the early years sector.

What I did:
I consulted with professionals from the early years sector, to develop an informed framework. This included desk based consultation and facilitation of consultation seminars to ensure broad and balanced input.

Working in partnership with:

  • School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences, Loughborough University.
  • National Day Nurseries Association.
  • Public Health England.
  • Active Cumbria.
  • Outdoor Play and Learning.
  • Margaret Whitehead PhD DArts, Visiting Professor, University of Bedfordshire.
  • Patricia Maude MBE, Emeritus Fellow, Homerton College, University of Cambridge.
  • Karl Rogerson, Principal, Billesley Primary School.
  • Liz Prosser, Healthy Schools Manager, Healthy Schools London.
  • Dr Lala Manners.


  • Accessed via the internet, through networks of professionals and as part of training workshops.
  • The framework has been positively received.
