5 Steps to create your 'Our School Can’ pledge for 2018-19

1. Consider how you can influence new healthy, active choices for the children, young people and colleagues in your school.

  • Promote Active Travel by encouraging walking, scooting and cycling more to school
  • Introduce more Active Curriculums!
  • Consider new ways to entice children and young people to be active in your school playgrounds and open spaces!
  • Introduce Change 4 Life club!
