Everyday Activity

The Challenge

Coordinating and promoting everyday activity and healthy lifestyles is one of the core responsibilities of SSPs because of the impact on children’s learning, behaviour, attainment, achievement and attainment.

For children to enjoy lifelong physical health and robust emotional well- being, they need to be taught not just physical literacy but also about the value of everyday activity, sensible eating
and healthy hydration as well as the importance of rest and sleep.

Our solution

We can engage with a variety of extra- curricular programmes such as Matalan Sporting Promise, Bikeability, Playground Leaders, Five60 and Change4 Life clubs that make activity an integral part of the school day, not simply confined to PE sessions.

Our Young Leaders can help teachers deliver Everyday Activities.  These programmes can also make a valuable contribution to meeting Ofsted standards.

The Results

Recent comments from schools who have participated in the Bikeability programme, delivered by VELO and funded through the SSP include:

Rowsley Primary:  “An excellent course encouraging self- awareness & safety. All the children were given plenty of time to practise skills, whilst having fun. They gained a better understanding of their bike and how to maintain it.”

Doveridge Primary:  “The delivery of Bikeability was suitable for the children’s ages and abilities. It was fun and informative and gave the children plenty of opportunity to cycle and put into practice what they had learnt. It was a great experience for all of us!”

Becky Bryan from Derbyshire Dales Village Games (and a former Young Leader at Highfields) works with Derbyshire Dales District Council to deliver the 10 week long Five60 programme designed to encourage kids to eat five pieces of fruit and veg and do 60 minutes of physical activity a day.

Becky says:  “We play loads of fun games and activities out in the school playground which teach the children the importance of healthy eating. It’s amazing how much they learn. It is totally different to a classroom environment. They’re outside and you’re incorporating the learning into the activities rather than just telling them what they should be eating.”

The Partnership will:

• Work with your school to identify and deliver programmes that encourage children to make physical activity an integral part of the school day and to educate them about a healthy lifestyle, through exercise.

• We will work to secure funding and develop partnerships with sporting bodies, charities, central government, local councils and corporate sponsors to deliver additional value.
