Education and pupil participation
To participate, pupils have to know, think along, decide and act.
So, it starts with the right knowledge (know).
Healthy Living formulates success factors for a movement policy. Get started with the education (know) component to change pupil development and knowledge about sedentary behaviour. Get inspired by what Healthy Living puts available. Depending on the time available, opt for a day or a project (week) to work on it.
We will spend one full day working with different classes on the theme of movement. Many skills are addressed in an integrated way.
Integrated project primary education
In primary education, we spend a week working across several learning areas on the theme of sedentary behaviour and movement.
Integrated project secundary education
We work during 3 weeks on several field subjects around the theme of sedentary behaviour and movement.
During a project week, several persons from the environment of the pupil are involved, namely the parents, peers and teachers.
Organize pupil participation councils on a regular basis and find out what the pupils think about more physical activity at your school. The pupils have clear opinions and good ideas about this topic as well.
Organize these deliberations in a movement-friendly way and use active work formats.
Inform your pupils of your movement policy. Inform them about the necessity of moving. See here how they did it in the Bredene Middenschool.
