Time to think again about activity
Despite huge investment in school sport and PE, over 80% of 5 – 15 year olds still fail to reach the government’s minimum levels of activity. Children as young as seven are sitting down far too much whilst their levels of obesity and diabetes escalate. If we are going to make a real difference to children’s long-term health, we must begin by setting an activity level that is much more empathetic to children’s capabilities and accessible to them all. This is the basis of the unique Active Movement programme, designed for every child from Nursery to Secondary school.
