This action plan is a statement of intent, setting out a joint commitment from the Department for Education DfE, Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport DCMS, and Department for Health and Social Care DHSC, to ongoing collaboration at national level to ensure that sport and physical activity are an integral part of both the school day and after-school activities, so that all children have the opportunity to take part in at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day. The plan recognises the importance of daily physical activity. Physical activity is a key part of developing a healthy lifestyle and plays an important role in maintaining a healthy weight. The plan builds on the measures set out in Chapter 2 of our Childhood Obesity by further supporting schools to create environments which encourage pupils to lead healthy, active lifestyles. The importance of physical activity in promoting children and young peoples mental wellbeing is equally clear Physical and mental health are inextricably linked. Numerous studies confirm a positive association between physical activity and increased self esteem, emotional wellbeing and future aspirations, and physical activity is also associated with lower levels of anxiety and depression. It is clear that there are no quick fixes but we must take the first steps now to ensure that our children and young people develop healthy, active lifestyles and have the best chances in life.
On the 12th September 2019 UKActive launched Generation Inactive 2. Nothing About Us, Without Us. Generation Inactive 2 Nothing About Us, Without Us, aims to go beyond the first edition by providing a framework for understanding the multi-faceted and interactive effects of personal, social and environmental factors that influence childrens physical activity behaviour. Whilst many organisations have sought to tackle this problem through one single domain, the time is now to take a whole battlefield approach to tackling the war against the challenges faced by future generations. This report enables governors, head teachers and school leaders to plan for the long term, based on a government commitment to maintain a ringfenced PE, sport and physical activity premium as part of a whole-school approach to childrens health and physical activity until at least 2030.
