Kate Thornton-Bousfield said: “Thanks for inviting us to be part of an incredible day. Throughout the last two years the importance of physical activity and human connection has really been put in the spotlight.
“Although we may be through the worst of the pandemic, we will live with the consequences and impact for many years to come. Now is the time to ensure we consider the needs of all learners in our physical education, physical activity and sport offers in the school environment. PE lessons are the only guaranteed time we have 100% of learners whom we can influence. This is why PE must be relevant, purposeful and meaningful to all.”
