With schools and Early Years settings returning from lockdown, there are difficult challenges ahead. Children will have been inactive and eating poorly; they will be unused to concentrating for lengthy periods; emotional wellbeing will be an issue not only through weeks of isolation but in returning to a world that being attacked by illness and a school environment that is different and restrictive. Add to this the forthcoming new PHSE curriculum coming online at the same time as the urgent need to make up for lost academic time, and it is no wonder teachers, staff and indeed parents are concerned. Active Movement’s new Active Recovery programme is currently being undertaken in 8 Slough primary schools and will be rolled out across all schools as of September. It is designed to support schools and settings overcome these challenges without disrupting classes, burdening teachers or compromising teaching time.
