The government's aspiration is that children will be active for two hours a day, half of which should take place in school. In addition to active play times, PE lessons and extra-curricular sport clubs, children have quick bursts of activity between some lessons. These include: lap and back (0.25 miles), 5-a-day-fitness and more recently an initiative on yoga for children.
From January 2018 we started some 8am sport clubs for an active start to the day with more unusual sports like Fencing and Judo.
Our What's on in the Community page suggests places where you can be up and about as a family.
The government have placed greater emphasis on physical education and sport to combat declining fitness and the obesity crisis with 1 in 3 children now classed as over-weight.
As a member of the local school sports partnership we can provide better experiences and greater opportunities for participation and collaboration with our partner primary and high schools. Children have participated in competitions including Athletics, Duathlon, Football, Golden Mile, Gymnastics, Hockey, Netball, Swimming and Tag Rugby.
