This research was commissioned by the CPSU for the purpose of safeguarding children and young people in sport and leisure facilities.

Titled 'Summary of child development ages 8-11 years for the purposes of safeguarding children in sport and leisure facilities (PDF), this research details changes in children's cognitive, moral, social and physical development.

Children develop at their own individual pace and some may mature more quickly in some areas of development than in others.
