Our mission is to install a love for PHYSICAL ACTIVITY within all children so that they develop a positive life-long attitude towards moving more.
The importance of physical activity and mental wellbeing has never been more prevalent given the recent worldwide pandemic.
Research regarding the impact of COVID-19 on Gloucestershire pupils indicates that children and young people who experienced poor mental health were also less physically active.
Out of those children or young people who take part in regular physical activity most/every day; 80% reported high mental health. Out of those that were less active; 54% reported low mental health.
Physical inactivity has increased since 2018, with 30% of pupils now doing two hours or fewer each week compared to the Chief Medical Officer guidelines of 60+ minutes of physical activity every day.
57% of parents are concerned about their own wellbeing or mental health in the year ahead. are a team of experts in Physical Education, school sport and physical activity for children and young people.
A Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO), we deliver physical activity and health provision for every school across Cheltenham and Tewkesbury. Whereas throughout the school holidays, we provide parent paid holiday camps for 3 – 11 year olds. The income generated from these camps is reinvested into our charity to subsidise school-based delivery and ensure we have enough staff to meet the needs of our schools across the two districts.
No Child Left Behind winners in the #PhysicallyActive and #StrongFamilies categories, we have also recently secured funding from various sources to deliver free holiday camps and community activities for vulnerable children and families.
