Active 30:30 Tri
We are in danger of imploding as a society and letting down a whole generation of children. It is only adults that stop children moving. If children don’t move, inflammation increases and the chances of acute disease increases… starting with the hardening of the arteries which is speeding up the aging process in children as young as six years-old. We need to create a new norm for children where sitting is limited and movement is encouraged at school and at home to improve their quality of adult life and create healthy happy active learners. We know that children’s long-term involvement in physical activities that have variety, fun and different intensities is better for creating active habits and improving cognition and health. To create an active school culture we have to integrate movement into the school day and not just as a bolt-on physical activity. This will mean considering and ‘nudging’ children along this continuum from standing up (sitting less) and increasing their activity levels throughout the day (moving more). Active 30:30 Tri is a resource providing practical ways in which to plan 15, 10 and 5 minutes of physical activity of different intensities throughout the school day. Additional copies of the poster can also be downloaded from this page.

Boys Mental Health
For the last 15 years, the Youth Sport Trust has been driving change in the area of gender inequalities with a much-needed focus on girls. Providing girls with equal access and opportunities to the life-changing benefits of PE and sport is crucial. However, have we left the issues of boys’ disaffection, wellbeing and achievement behind? That is the key question that Youth Sport Trust Lead Health & Wellbeing Schools and Head Teacher Ambassadors have been asking us.
Brief Summary of evidence linking physical activity and school sport to academic attainment and wellbeing
We welcome the interest in this research and believe there is an evidence pathway linking children’s participation in physical activity and school sport with academic achievement and wellbeing (see diagram below). We are currently collaborating with Professor Clough to extend the study he conducted with HMC into state schools to assess the relationship between sport, wellbeing and achievement further.
