Primary Schools

Physical activity at primary schools

There has been a wealth of research in recent times surrounding the growing problem of inactivity in young people and children. Currently in the UK, only half of seven year olds are meeting physical activity guidelines. They are sedentary for six hours or more each day and this poses a problem for the long term health and well-being of our children.

Physical Activity Guidelines

It is also well documented that inactivity can lead to problems at school. Behaviour issues, poor concentration levels and low attendance due to sickness can be linked partly to low levels of physical activity. Ensuring children get the correct levels and intensity of physical activity can offer wider benefits beyond the playground and the classroom.

The Benefits of PA in Schools

At Sporting Chance we deliver bespoke programmes that are specifically designed to meet the needs of each and every school we work with. We spend time in your school and with your PE coordinator to examine what requirements the school may have for curriculum based lessons (PPA cover), staff training and development (CPD), child mentoring, and extra-curricular clubs. We are here to assist in getting the best value for money in spending your Sport Premium funding.
