Whole School Approach to Physical Activity


As you may be aware Public Health England have been updating the resource 'What Works to Increase Physical Activity in Schools and Colleges', this has now been published and is available on the .Gov website. 

In addition to this the Public Health England Yorkshire & Humber Centre have been working on a Whole Schools Approach Framework for Physical Activity with Yorkshire Sport Foundation and Leeds Beckett University. In June we held a conference for primary school heads and governors and a think tank the following day with a wide range of stakeholders including Active Schools, Activity Partnerships, Public Health, School Senior Leadership teams and local, national and international academics. 

This work is to support the actions in the regional Yorkshire & Humber Childhood Obesity Action Plan we have working on for the past 16 months.The resources will support your local efforts to increase physical activity for children and young people in schools.
