PW2 - Active 30:30 Workshop Induction
Youth Sport Trust
The Government Childhood Obesity Plan has set out the ambition for all children to achieve one hour of physical activity every day, with schools being responsible for delivering 30 of these active minutes. Active 30:30 is the YST response to this ambition, and has been developed to help schools reduce sedentary behaviour and increase physical activity in young people outside of timetabled curriculum PE. It also addresses how to help influence the remaining 30 active minutes to be achieved outside of school by engaging families, clubs and community groups. Join this workshop to network and see how you can effect change in your own school setting.
PW3: Open Networking
Take the opportunity to meet, plan or network in your own way. The exhibitors will welcome your interest. In addition, the SGO's will be available to speak to about the School Games Programme for 2018-19, the School Games Mark and more.

Dr Martin Yelling
Mental Health and Movement in Primary Schools. Creating healthy, happy humans!
This project is a multiagency collaboration between Bournemouth University, University of Winchester, local primary schools and Poole CAMHS. It aims to improve children's psychological well-being through movement, sport and physical activity and equip them with sustainable, transferable skills and coping strategies. These skills are essential for our children to survive within the chaotic and complex demands of growth into adult life in the 21st Century. It sounds dramatic, but it isn't. We're not doing enough. We have a responsibility to do more and serve our children better amongst the growing crisis in children's mental health in the UK. In this workshop you'll find out what's going on and how you could get involved.
