Slough Borough Council has launched an ambitious new activity programme at Khalsa Primary School.
We are working with Active Movement – an organisation set up to focus on simple changes in behaviour that empower people to sit less and move more.
The Active Movement programme is designed to evolve with the children’s own mobility, communication, education and maturity. The programme aims to educate and inspire children to reduce their sedentary behaviour and increase low-level activity as part of the home and school life.
Our children filled out a questionnaire last year to assess their levels of activity. This year the questionnaire was filled out again and the results will now be evaluated so we can receive catered guidance on how to improve.
Children were assessed on their weight, grip strength and waist circumference last year. A select group of children also wore an activity monitoring device around their waist for a week. This year the tests and monitoring were repeated so that the results can be evaluated in order for us to receive catered guidance on how to improve.
