‘Active Schools’ – Leicestershire, Leicester & Rutland’s Whole School Approach

LRS has worked in partnership with Head Teachers from primary,
secondary and special schools across LLR and with partners from Public
Health and SSPANs to develop a new 'Whole School Approach to Physical
Education, School Sport, Physical Activity and Health & Wellbeing'. Our
aim is to ensure that every young person receives a high quality offer that
enhances their health and wellbeing and educational outcomes.


There were 4 initial priorities identified; developing fundamental
movement programmes, targeted programmes for inactive boys and
girls, active travel and the Daily Boost. This model has been promoted
to all schools through key strategic Head Teacher forums, networks and
conferences with many schools already successfully embedding it into their planning and delivery.


"The Whole School Approach has the potential to have significant impact on the lives of young people in LLR. It has provided a co-ordinated, strategic and visionary framework for primary, secondary and special schools that enables them to deliver high quality opportunities for their pupils. Inspiring the young people in our schools to become lifelong participants in physical activity is an essential component of our role in education and the Whole School Approach provides the ideal structure to achieve this."

Ben Solly, Principal, Uppingham Community College / Chair of the Active Schools Champion Group
