At Redhill, we encourage our children to follow an active lifestyle to improve both their physical fitness and their overall wellbeing.
Wake up, Shake up!
In Key Stage One, children participate in the Wake up, Shake up programme twice a week in the small hall. They learn short routines to pop songs to "wake them up" and get them ready for the school day. To find out more about the programme, visit the website here.
PE and PHSE
Through our PE and PHSE curriculum, we strive to give our pupils the information they need to make the right decisions about their health and wellbeing. Using the 2020 PHSE statutory guidance and our SCARF scheme of work, we teach:
- the characteristics and mental and physical benefits of an active lifestyle
- the importance of building regular exercise into daily and weekly routines and how to achieve this; for example walking or cycling to school, a daily active mile or other forms of regular, vigorous exercise
- the risks associated with an inactive lifestyle (including obesity).
- how and when to seek support including which adults to speak to in school if they are worried about their health.
