    The DfE say that, “Government are encouraging schools to prioritise physical activity… there are well-established links between physical activity, improved mental wellbeing and educational attainment.” Vicky Ford, Department for Education

    It can be tricky, no matter how convinced you are yourself, to encourage your colleagues to adopt a more physically active routine in the classroom. Teach Active are now offering CPD training and are seeking schools that would like to host a free training session in their setting. The session, entitled ‘Physically Active Learning (in Maths and English) – an Evidence Based Approach’ will cover topics such as:
    “What is an active school’?
    The benefits of physically active learning
    How do children best learn?
    How our memory works
    Steps to Success
    As more schools join the mission to become an active school and/or begin to introduce the ‘Creating Active Schools Framework’, we explore the role physical activity has to play – and in particular how physically active learning can significantly impact on well-being and academic achievement.
    Working with Loughborough University and studying research from educational experts and leading schools.
    Teach Active and Youth Sport Trust are on a mission to provide the best high quality CPD to schools across the UK – allowing your schools to increase physical activity and see it as key component of whole school and whole child development.
    Following on from the course it is hoped that delegates will feedback and implement key strategies discussed. The training is open to anyone in a position of authority to do this. Best positioned for Subject Leaders, middle management, SLT and Headteachers.
