Conference 22


Suitable Workshop

15 Nov 2022

The Active Play programme was conceived to address problems relating to low levels of physical activity during childhood that lead to a range of preventable mental, physical, and social problems. Ongoing evaluation and research, undertaken by the universities of Strathclyde and Glasgow, have evidenced the benefit of active play on children’s health, wellbeing, and development.

Active Play is simple: it boosts physical activity in children and helps them develop fundamental movement skills such as coordination and balance, all through playing physically active games.

Join us for this workshop where participants will:

  • hear from Inspiring Scotland, one of our charity delivery partners and an Active Play school
  • be encouraged to consider how active play is built into their school environment to enable children to develop FMS, improved well-being, resilience and social connection (interactive element).
  • see a demonstration of the Active Play hub on Actify which hosts a variety of practical and knowledge-based modules.
