Keeping Active

It is possibly more important than ever before to keep children active at this challenging time.

Without the routine of regular physical activity at school, children are at a greater risk of developing poor habits and therefore having a detrimental effect on their physical and mental health.

Please find below a selection of online resources that will help your children experience physical activity every day.

Stay safe - Stay healthy!
