Becoming a more active school
To meet the Chief Medical Officers’ guidance on physical activity, schools, parents and the sport sector must work together to ensure that children and young people have access to at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day.
Even though it is thought that society is getting healthier, it is actually scary that our young generation are going to live 5 years less than their parents/carers! Therefore at Springbank we are looking into ways to increase the amount of active time throughout the school day.
Children will be aiming to complete the daily mile for 20 minutes each day and can choose whether to walk or run. We are also looking into ways to be make breakfast club more physically active, are going to bring back 'Wake and Shake' and encourage more active learning within the classroom. The aim is to smash the additional 30 minutes and always go above and beyond for our children.
Let's give our children the chance to have a longer life span and adapt a healthier life style to take into adulthood!
The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme administered by the Youth Sport Trust, which rewards schools for a commitment to the development of competition across schools and into the community. The Platinum Award is the highest level of the award scheme, celebrating schools who have shown consistently high levels of enthusiasm and commitment to sport.
The School Games wasn't stopped by Coronavirus, if anything, it has made us even more determined to ensure that PE and School Sport is at the heart of what children and young people do. In March 2020 the School Games went virtual, and despite lots of challenges, staff and families adapted quickly and found ways to get active and keep fit and healthy!
