Everybody Active, Every Day - One Year On
PHE have published and launched at the Everybody Active, Every Day – One Year On event What works in schools and colleges to increase physical activity? It identifies actions that can be taken across the school and college day that are known to be effective in supporting children and young people to be physically active. This comes on the back of a survey published last week that found that just 15% of girls and 22% of boys manage to get the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity per day. Based on an evidence review, the report sets out eight areas for action, practice examples, links to the Ofsted inspection criteria and signposting to useful sources of support. It is aimed at head teachers, college principals and directors of public health. The report is supported by the Department for Education, Department of Health, Department for Transport and Department for Culture, Media and Sport.
