This article outlines the findings of a research project and a follow-up studycommissioned by Sport Northern Ireland relating to the development of an assessmenttool for physical literacy.

The discussion concludes with a summary of therecommendations of a cross-sectoral Physical Literacy Task and Finish Group whichhighlight how considerably more resources are required to develop assessmentindicators for PL and to further advocate the importance of PL.
