Event celebrates PE2020 partnership

School leaders from across Northamptonshire have gathered at the House of Lords today to raise awareness of the Youth Sport Trust’s PE2020 Active Healthy Minds programme which is supporting young people across the county.

P2020 Active Healthy Minds has been established in Northamptonshire since September 2015 and aims to improve the physical, social and emotional wellbeing of young people aged 11 to 18.

By building a foundation of core life skills through physical education and physical activity the programme allows young people to positively manage their mental wellbeing and achieve their full potential.

The House of Lords event today included representatives from schools across Northamptonshire and partners involved in delivering the programme.

Baroness Sue Campbell, Chair of the Youth Sport Trust, said:

“PE2020 Active Healthy Minds is a crucial partnership for the Youth Sport Trust as it is tackling some of the biggest challenges young people face as they progress through school.

“We know that active children enjoy better physical and mental health, social wellbeing, cognitive and academic performance. This positive impact not only helps children at school but also in adult life which is why our work in Northamptonshire is making such a difference.”

Councillor Matt Golby, Northamptonshire County Council cabinet member for children’s services said:

“We are pleased to be supporting this exciting programme in Northamptonshire. The unique impact PE and sport has on the physical and emotional development of children and young people can improve their life skills and in doing so, make a real difference to the health and wellbeing of children in our county.”
