The Government Childhood Obesity Plan has set out the ambition for all children to achieve 60 minutes of physical activity every day, with schools being responsible for delivering 30 of these active minutes. Active 30:30 is our response to this ambition, and has been developed to help schools reduce sedentary behaviour and increase physical activity in young people outside of timetabled curriculum PE. It also addresses how to help influence the remaining 30 active minutes to be achieved outside of school through families, clubs and community groups.
Made up of 10 sequential steps, the Active 30:30 resource helps practitioners to create an active school which supports the principles of learning already established. Included in the resource is a step-by-step practitioner resource, providing a robust evidence base with guidance and tips to maximise impact. It also includes sample resource cards, review templates, planning documents, certificates and a variety of free downloadable resources to support the delivery of daily physical activity within school.
