Making PE a core subject alongside English, Welsh, maths and science would help tackle the problem of childhood obesity, according to a report.
It calls for PE to be a subject which is formally and regularly assessed and for teachers to be 'throughly prepared' in initial training.
Evidence shows that we are facing a ticking obesity time-bomb and, unless we make physical education a core subject, we will still be here in 20 years' time having made little or no progress.
The Schools and Physical Activity Task and Finish Group consulted with a range of education, spot, leisure and cultural organisations across Wales, as well as speaking to children and young people, in compiling the report.
The report says the only way to make 'physical literacy' as important in schools as reading, writing and numeracy, is to give PE 'core-subject status.'
It also calls for a 'National Physical Literacy Framework' to support PE teaching in schools, similar to those used for numeracy and literacy.
