The new Chief Medical Officer Physical Activity Guidelines released September 2019

The new Chief Medical Officer Physical Activity Guidelines were released this week and the message couldn’t be any clearer. Moving more increases confidence, mood, health, opportunities, quality of sleep, improved behaviour. Whether a child or an adult, break up periods of inactivity and MOVE MORE!

‘If physical activity we’re a drug, we would refer to it as a miracle cure, due to the great many illnesses it can prevent and help treat’ (Lizzy Williams, Dance and Music Lead Teacher at Kenilworth Nursery School)
