We all know that inactivity is a major issue amongst our young people – a report issued recently showed that in the worse parts of the country 44% of 11-year olds were overweight or obese, this reduced to 25% in the slimmest borough, but still these figures are alarming.
Active 30 – how will it benefit my school?
A primary school child sits for an average of 4 to 5 hours per day – this can be detrimental to their health. Activity not only makes them fitter and healthier, but it can considerably boost cognitive learning and academic performance too. Small bursts of regular activity throughout the day will contribute to:
- Higher grades
- Improved behaviour
- More focus
- Happier and healthier children
As you’ll be aware, Primary Schools are being asked to ensure that every child gets a minimum of 30 minutes of structured activity every day as part of Active 30 – but where does a busy school even begin!
