  • Focus on what children actually learn, ahead of results.
  • Discourage a culture of 'teaching to the test'
  • Include a new 'behaviour' judgement to give parents reassurance on bullying.

3. Ministerial School Sport Action Plan

Towards the end of 2018, the Government announced that they would be creating a cross-government school sport and activity action plan. The purpose of this plan is to ensure that all children have access to quality, protected PE and sport sessions during the school week and opportunities to be physically active throughout the school day.

The Plan should be launched this term (summer 2019) and will be informed by both the Active Lives: Children and Young People Survey findings and the new OFSTED Inspection Framework .
