Fit Fifteen

North Ayrshire Council are encouraging schools to sign up to ‘Fit Fifteen’.  Fit fifteen increases physical activity for all of our children and young people as part of the school day.  It is in addition to the planned PE programme for the week.  Types of physical activity would include; walking, running, rebounding, cycling, use of playground equipment and so on.  For our learners there are numerous benefits including; improving bone health, improving physical mobility and functional movement,  promoting good mental health, helping to maintain a healthy weight etc.   All of our classes have taken the Fit Fifteen Pledge sheet away at this morning’s team meeting to detail what they will do to further promote this and develop this with their learners.  Further information to follow shortly.
