The review group, made up of education and physical activity experts from across Wales, estimates it would cost £5million a year to make PE a core subject - but says the cost should be set against the £73m annual cost of the health service dealing with obesity.
The report states that giving PE core-subject status would result in:
- Teachers being required to be competent to deliver the subject on completion of their teacher training
- Well-qualified, specialist teachers being employed to work with schools to ensure high-quality provision
- Standards and provision in physical education being rigorously reviewed in school.
