The Active Movement programme held its first co-ordinator meeting in Slough before Easter. Onsite co-ordinators across all participating settings attended a special review of the programme and looked ahead at new developments including a new approach to supporting schools during SATs via the Active Movement programme. Increases in activity levels can help memory, concentration and energy levels. Small changes in hydration, nutrition and sleeping habits can also have major benefits on enhancing performance and reducing stress. An Active Movement dedicated programme was shared with all.
The meeting also saw the first discussions about community programmes ranging from Active Movement events between schools to Summer celebrations, even a town-wide initiative. Proposals working with Slough Council are being considered.
A similar co-ordinator meeting is taking place with schools in the London Sport programme in the next couple of weeks.
