Change4life – Less active pupils







Sports Week – All pupils

Staff have attended Change4life training, bought PE equipment and identified target children through playground observations. Staff have commented how much enjoyment children are getting from these small group sessions and that all the children have increased their physical activity levels, confidence and PE

All children have been involved in a wide range of sports including climbing, archery, clubbercise, cheerleading, hula hooping, boxing, athletics, cycling.

Change4life groups will continue and grow in size. Observations have been completed for more children to join in Sep17 and more staff will attend Change4life training when it is offered.
