Health and Wellbeing

The link between Pupil health and wellbeing and attainment:
Pupils with better health and wellbeing are more likely to achieve academically.
Effective social and emotional competencies are associated with greater health and wellbeing, and better achievement.
The culture, ethos and environment of a school influences the health and wellbeing of pupils and their readiness to learn.
A positive association exists between academic attainment and physical activity levels of pupils.
Physical activity has been linked to improved classroom behaviour across the whole school.

The Reality

Nearly a third of children aged 2 to 15 are overweight or obese.
Children from low income backgrounds are the worst affected (twice as likely to be affected by the age of 5, three times as likely by the age of 11)
Chief Medical Officer guidelines says that children should undertake at least 60 minutes and up to several hours of activity each day.
Approximately 75% of primary age children do not currently do the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity a day.
From Sept 2017 the sugar tax on soft drinks and sugary snacks will double the primary sports sports premium with more emphasis placed on what schools are doing towards the health and wellbeing of pupils.
Whilst schools cannot possibly provide all of the solutions, they will be tasked with providing at least thirty minutes of vigorous physical activity in every school day.
A new healthy rating scheme for primary schools will be in place from September 2017

Year 5/6 Sports Hall Athletics

Year 5/6 Hyndburn Sportshall Athletics

Rhyddings played host to the one of our Indoor athletic events on Wednesday 10th January. This event had 3 teams compete, 2 of these from St Marys School Oswaldtwistle and 1 team from St Pauls. As St Pauls were low on numbers with just 5 children, each athlete had the opportunity to take part in all the field events which they loved. St Marys with both an A & B team showed great team spirt even though they was competing against each other. The points at the end of the event were St Pauls 48points, St Marys B 76 points & St Marys A 84 points. Winners being St Marys A Team, Well Done! There points will be ranked against the winners of the remaining competitions, to then possibly go qualify for the County Finals.
