60 minutes physical activity offer and active learning

At St Oswald's we understand the importance of Physical literacy as a fundamental component of a child's development that goes beyond traditional physical education.  It encompasses a range of skills, knowledge, and attitudes that enable individuals to move with competence and confidence in a variety of physical activities.


To meet the Chief Medical Officers’ guidance on physical activity, schools, parents and the sport sector must work together to ensure that children and young people have access to at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day. As set out in the Childhood Obesity Plan, at least 30 minutes should take place in schools, and the remaining 30 outside the school day.
