Physical activity can help children catch up

Physical activity can help children catch up on missed work

New research shows students and teachers report physical activity can improve pupils' mood, confidence and schoolwork.

Physically active children report improvements in their schoolwork, behaviour and mental health, according to new research from Sheffield Hallam University.

The study, conducted on more than 60,000 students and 4,000 teachers, was part of our Secondary Teacher Training (STT) programme and surveyed their attitudes to work, physical and mental health.

This research shows that helping children and young people to get active during school can play a vital role in helping them catch up work missed during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, and in supporting their mental health.
