Call You and Yours: Are your children getting PE at school?

Listen in pop-out player

Last week an Ofsted report recommended that the Department for Education considers devising a new national strategy for PE and school sport. They want to see more done which would build on the sporting legacy left by the 2012 Olympic Games.

While the elite schools can provide a well defined and well funded physical education programme many state schools are not able to do the same. So what should be done to make sure Physical Education is part of every child's entitlement to a good education. How do we instil a love of sport for life?

Is your child getting enough PE at school?

Did you enjoy PE when you were at school? Were you encouraged or discouraged from taking part? Is the emphasis on being competitive the wrong approach?
