Suggested Learning Experiences

The Healthy Schools approach has been designed to run alongside a core PE programme. This enables more effective support for pupils’ understanding of the importance of an active lifestyle and helps to develop skills associated with habitual physical activity.

Small Space

  • Carry out a school survey to find out the kinds of activities that children already take part in within and beyond school. Find out what kinds of physical activities they would like to be involved in at home or at school.
  • In small groups, research reasons why people may / may not want to take part in clubs/activities eg, cost, accessibility, motivation, nothing they want to do, other commitments etc. Each group to pick a different reason and try to come up with at least one practical solution to the problem.
  • Write to national groups to ask for help or advice eg Scottish Athletics, Sports Scotland.
  • Investigate the actual availability of clubs / activities within their school and wider community.
  • Invite people like Active Schools Coordinator or local councillor to come and speak to the children about  issues around encouraging children to become more active within the locality eg safety of cycling to school.
  • From the evaluation of the survey, consider what sports/activities children might be interested in trying. Discuss options for getting taster sessions organised in school with  HWB coordinator.
  • From all the information gathered, plan and organise a lunchtime club / after-school activity for themselves and their peers – consider who would need to support them to deliver this, equipment, available space, timetabling, risk assessment, healthy and safety etc.
