Course description

The local engagement event will support schools to increase physical activity throughout the school day to boost health and academic achievement for their students. It looks at how schools can:

2] develop their understanding of the evidence and research underpinning active approaches in schools

3] learn how to use the free Active School Planner to increase daily activity and reduce sitting time for every child

By the end of the workshop, delegates should be able to:

• advocate why high levels of physical activity across the school day lead to healthier and more effective learners

• reflect on how effective their current provision is at promoting physical activity throughout the school day

• know how to reduce sedentary behaviour and embed physical activity in their school

The workshop will run from 4-5pm, delegates can arrive from 3.30pm for tea and coffee, networking and to contect their laptops to the wi-fi. Booking is via the events section of the PSSP website;
