Did you know?
More than one in five children are overweight or obese when they begin school, and one in three children are overweight or obese by the time they leave primary school. It is our job to ensure that your little one gets of to an active, healthy and happy start within their Early Learning Journey.
The Importance of Early Physical Activity Exposure
The importance of getting children active from an early age is crucial. Not only is it vital in enhancing their physical development but it can also greatly enhance other aspects of their progression too such as gaining confidence, understanding relationships and beginning teamwork.
Physical development is one of the seven areas of the early years foundation stage and is used to develop a child's movement, handling of objects, understanding of their own body and health and levels of self-care.
Physical development has been described as ‘experience-expectant’ learning which means that the brain is wired in expectation of this development. If it doesn’t happen early on within a child's early learning journey, then it is more difficult to establish later on.
Babies and young children undergo rapid and wide-ranging physical and psychological developments in their early years which contribute to their future health and well-being.
This early exposure to physical physical activity is not only highly beneficial to your child's Physical Development but their social development too. Physical Development can help with the development of personal and social skills such as self-confidence, interaction, taking turns, getting along with their peers.

PE & Sport Premium 2020-2021
The Government has announced that the PE and Sport Premium fund for primary schools & and Early Years Settings will remain at the increased rate of £320 million for 2020/21. This funding is provided to help educational settings meet the aims of the School Sport and Activity Action Plan, which includes the target of 60 minutes exercise a day. The exact amount of funding a school receives varies based on a number of factors, but the average one form entry primary school will receive roughly £18,000 per year.
Furthermore, any unspent sport premium because of the coronavirus this year can be brought forward into 2020-21 which is a fantastic boost to all setting associated.
The World Health Organization (WHO) regards childhood obesity as one of the most serious global public health challenges for the 21st century, with the UK currently having one of the highest overall obesity rates across Europe such funding will go a long way in helping the way that we as a nation are able to provide physical activity provision for our children, to enhance our children’s health and wellbeing.
