How we support physical wellbeing 

  1. We make physical education fun
  2. We include everyone, from those who love sport, to those who are less keen to get involved
  3. Coaches give children the confidence and motivation to continue playing
  4. We develop fundamental movement skills
  5. We target areas where children are less active

Fun for all 

According to Sport England’s Active Lives research, over 50% of children in England are not reaching the recommended amount of physical activity, and children are reporting fewer positive attitudes to sport and exercise. The World Health Organisation defines physical wellbeing as being a key factor when it comes to our overall health.

66% of Chance to Shine School participants strongly agree they enjoy taking part in exercise and sport, the national average for all children is just 47%. 

98% of Chance to Shine Street participants strongly agree they feel confident when they exercise and play sport, the national average for all children is just 35%.
