A new online resource, Active School Planner, is a tool for primary schools to help track and improve physical activity levels in their pupils – and it’s free!

Increased activity = improved engagement and results

Produced by the brilliant Youth Sport Trust, this user friendly tool – designed for primary schools but available to all – will enable you to increase physical activity and reduce sedentary behaviour in pupils, a rising problem across the country. The planner also allows schools to demonstrate the principles of an active school and plan activities accordingly.

It is now well established that active pupils perform better – a healthy body leads to a healthy mind, behaviour improves, engagement improves and, ultimately, results will improve. Currently, 4 out of 5 children are not active enough, contributing to ever-increasing levels of obesity. The tool should result in each pupil being active for 30 minutes more per school day.

How it works

The first time that you use the tool, you will be asked a series of simple questions that will allow you to customise and tailor the planner for your particular school. This only needs to be done once and doesn’t take long.

You will then be asked a few questions about a typical school day, all geared towards increasinging physical activity and reducing sedentary behaviour. This section takes around thirty minutes – but you only need to do it all once.

Once you’ve decided on your next steps, the tool will produce a summary report. You can add details like time scales, success measures and roles and responsibilities to this report to create your own action plan for increasing physical activity and reducing sedentary behaviour in your pupils.

You can access the tool directly via www.activeschoolplanner.org or sign up here.
