Physical activity on school playgrounds - the key to good health and better learning and attendance in schools.
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), children need at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous-intensity physical activity per day. But far too many children are nowhere near that.
School is mandatory for all children and the one place we know all children come to. This means that school is our window of opportunity to make sure all children have access to being physically active, to support with being happier and healthier.
