About This Webinar

Modern schools are incredibly busy places with relentless pressures to increase standards.

In amongst all of this, the health and wellbeing of UK primary school children is on the decline.

Physical activity levels amongst UK primary-aged children are falling from as early as 7-years of age.
Only 10% of children achieve the daily recommendations for physical activity.
Increasing numbers of children in the UK are leaving school classified as obese or overweight.

Traditional approaches towards improving health outcomes for children focus heavily upon Sport & PE during segmented periods of the school day. But does this engage all children in becoming more active? Or does it merely maintain the levels of those that are active already?

This workshop will focus on the principles of Physically Active Learning (PAL). Research in this field has found that PAL can:
Improve classroom behaviour and activity engagement.
Significantly reduce sedentary periods of time.
Offer aggregated improvement in academic performance over time.

This session will share the benefits of blending research and practice from around the world.
