Creating a culture of health and wellbeing through sport and physical activity Details
The YST Schools in Action open day gives the opportunity for colleagues to discuss with Chris Oke, Pupil Charter Co-ordinator at Swindon Academy, how placing sport and physical activity at the heart of your school can create a culture of students taking responsibility for their own health and wellbeing. In association with the Youth Sport Trust, Swindon Academy has used a range of innovative initiatives to develop that culture, ranging from Active in Mind, hub club sports and using combats sports as a curriculum intervention. During the open day attendees will have the opportunity to see some of these initiatives being delivered and hopefully meet some of the students who will provide an overview of the impact that they have had.
