Active Playgrounds

Lunchtime and break times provide an ideal opportunity for safe, structured and fun activities to engage all children and help meet recommended guidelines for all children to achieve the recommended 60 minutes of moderate-vigorous physical activity each day.

Eligible for School Sport Premium funding, The Active Playgrounds Programme is proven to improve lunchtime behaviour and increase activity levels – in 2015 Fit For Sport recorded a 75% reduction in lunchtime incidents and accidents as well as a reduction in senior management time spent dealing with accidents and behaviour problems.

Fit For Sport’s qualified training team will provide a comprehensive workshop to upskill and build confidence in playground staff to delivery inclusive, active and enjoyable physical activity for all children in the playground setting.  In 2019, playground staff having completed the training reported 70% increase on average in confidence in delivering inclusive physical activity within their playground setting.

"It has been fantastic! Staff are really enthused and the playground at lunchtimes is now a hive of activity. Behaviour incidents are almost non-existent as children are having such fun playing with each other. As a result, their lunchtimes are much more fun and active."
