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

55 minutes
First broadcast:
Tuesday 19 February 2013

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?

03700 100 444 is the phone number - a call will cost you the same as to an 01 or an 02 number - you can e-mail via the Radio 4 website, and you can text to 84844. if you do that we will charge you your standard operator message rate and we may call you back on that number. Or you can tweet @Radio4 using the hashtag Youandyours.
