MPs have debated making PE a core subject in Westminster this week. It comes as Ofsted recently released its report reviewing what good PE teaching should include.

In the debate MP Edward Timpson made the case for a move towards PE becoming a core subject.

Youth Sport Trust research conducted in 2018 was referenced as evidence showing the whistle has been blown on PE time again in secondary schools with 42,285 hours of PE lost from state-funded secondary schools between 2011/12 and 2020/21. More recent research from the charity also showed an appetite from parents for more physical activity in schools and PE as a core subject.
