Sport Australia, in partnership with ACHPER Victoria, developed the Physical Literacy: Guide for Schools, which defines the ideal school environment for optimal impact on increasing children’s physical activity and physical literacy.
To support schools in bringing the guide to life, Sport Australia and ACHPER Victoria developed a suite of resources and templates, including evidence of the benefits of physical literacy, an implementation plan and tips for developing each component of the guide.
