At Hartsfield JMI School, we are committed to helping children live a healthy, active lifestyle. Recent government research has shown a rising level of childhood obesity and inactivity across the UK, which we feel it is important to tackle. The current government recommendation is that children and young people do an hour of physical activity every day. As part of this, the Active 30:30 programme was launched, encouraging schools to provide an additional 30 minutes of exercise a day and parents/carers to do 30 minutes a day with their children.
On this page, you will find information on what we are doing in school to provide physical opportunities for your children and top tips on how to promote a healthy lifestyle at home as well.
