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

Peel Park and Salesbury Qualify For Lancashire School Games Final

Ten primary schools competed in the Hyndburn Schools year 3&4 key steps gymnastics event that took place at Hollins High School on 9th February.  Gymnasts competed in two disciplines – the floor and the vault and it was evident as the first gymnast took to the floor how high the standard was and how hard the gymnasts had been practising.  Each team had 5 members who took part in each discipline and the overall scores were combined to make the team score.

The event was judged by officials from Ribble Valley Acrobatics Academy and Hollins High school and the overall results were as follows:

1st – Peel Park A (66 points)

2nd Benjamin Hargreaves A (63.3 points)

3rd Baxenden (62.9 points)

Ribble Valley Event:

It was another record year for entries in the Ribble Valley event with twenty eight teams entered in total. With that many teams, they were divided into three sittings with each team allocated a time to come and compete.  As in the Hyndburn event, teams competed in both floor and vault events with judges from Ribble Valley Acrobatic academy and St Augustine’s High school.

The overall results were as follows:

1st – Salesbury (63.9 points)

2nd St Michael and St Johns (62.8 points)

3rd  – Gisburn (59.6 points)

Peel Park winning for the second year running and qualifying for the Spar Lancashire School Games in Blackpool on July 4th along with Salesbury from Ribble Valley.

Jane Johnson – School Games Organiser for Hyndburn and Ribble Valley said “The gymnastics is always a favourite event of mine and it’s great to see the standard increase year on year – this is a testament to the work that both the school teachers and Ribble Valley Gymnastics Academy have been doing in our schools”
