Government is committed to ensuring that all children and young people, particularly those who are currently least active or from under-represented groups, have the best opportunities to engage in sport and physical activity.

The Secretary of State regularly meets the Secretary of State for Education. Our Departments work closely together on school sport, including through the Ministerial School Sport Board which I attend along with the Minister for Vulnerable Children and Families and the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Public Health and Innovation.
