· Regular Exercise builds Self Esteem and Confidence, Improving children’s perceptions of having exercise for life.
· Promotes healthy active lifestyles into general family life through active travel alternatives.
· Time spent outside helps children become more aware of the surroundings.
Ofsted:
· Physical activity is a key part of the new healthy schools rating scheme, Active Travel is a great way to demonstrate how your school is encouraging kids to become more physically active.
· A recent Ofsted report found that schools with good provision had an emphasis on healthy living that included encouraging pupils, especially those in primary schools, to walk or cycle to school.
