Active Minutes

Physical activity guidelines have been published by The Department for Education (July 2019), which covers early years, children and young people. Physical activity should be encouraged across the population, with the latest evidence showing there is a clear link between physical activity and chronic disease.  The guidance focuses on being active every day and spells out the recommended minimum levels of activity for each age group:

  • Under 5s: 180 minutes - 3 hours each day once a child is able to walk
  • 5 - 18 year olds: 60 minutes and up to several hours every day of moderate to vigorous intensity. Three days a week should include vigorous intensity activities which strengthen muscle and bone.

60 Active Minutes...

The government have stated that, of the 60 minutes required for 5 - 18 year olds, schools are responsible for 30 minutes, in addition to the PE sessions the children complete each week.


As a school, we are making a conscious effort to ensure every child participates in 30 extra active minutes. Activities include:

  • The Daily Mile
  • Jump Start Jonny videos
  • The Body Coach work out videos
  • Cosmic Yoga
  • Wake Up Shake Up
  • Lunchtime clubs
  • Active Maths starters
  • Active Phonics and spelling games
