    The Draft Australian Physical Literacy Standard (the Standard) promotes a shared
    vision, clarity of understanding and a common language around effective and high-impact development of physical literacy. It draws on practice, both locally and internationally, and is informed by research into what supports lifelong engagement in movement and physical activity.

    The Standard follows the development of the Australian Physical Literacy Definition (the Definition), and combined, represent a framework that all Australians can use to develop physical literacy. By defining physical literacy, all sectors can consistently and deliberately explain it and therefore measure its impact in counteracting the decline in movement while supporting the increase in participation across sport, physical activity and recreation.
