We know physical activity contributes to both good physical and mental development.

There is a strong link between attainment and educational outcomes and the health and wellbeing of pupils.

Schools play an important role in helping to develop positive physical activity habits by raising awareness of the importance of regular physical activity.

Importantly, schools are uniquely placed to support the most inactive pupils, as well as the wider school community, to become more active.

Promoting the health and wellbeing of pupils and students within schools has the potential to improve both educational and health and wellbeing outcomes.

You can discover some of the ways we’re working with schools across North Yorkshire to make sure children in our communities are benefiting from all the positive outcomes of taking part in physical activity.
