Health, Well-Being and Building Resilience sessions.
The increasing rate of obesity is putting more and more strain on our NHS. The sedentary lifestyles brought on by long ours in front of computer and TV screens is having adverse effects on our lives. With this in mind, we have developed this project with help from teachers and leading specialists in the field of health and well being and is built to fit in perfectly with the new curriculum.
The aim of the programme is to have a positive impact on individuals and make children more resilient to ACE's (Adverse Childhood Experiences). It will also have a positive impact on the overall well-being and healthcare of the students. This programme covers the key ‘What Matters’ statements and the twelve pedagogical principles of the new Welsh curriculum. It has been key in helping several schools we work with, to plan and develop the new curriculum.
The sessions can be delivered in primary schools through to colleges and universities and can fit easily into the school or college timetable. The focus will be on educating the individual with easy to follow health and nutrition tips. We can deliver anything from a one off session or work with your school for a whole term or even academic year.
“We wanted our pupils to develop mental and behavioural agility, where they can show flexibility in different situations. Asking for help is just as important as showing grit and determination. We wanted to develop the whole child so that they can cope in different contexts beyond the classroom. This is an important aspect of the new curriculum that we wanted to grow and develop. Forces Fitness has supported us greatly in this area. Our pupils are not just being given exciting and memorable experiences that will increase their wellbeing. We firmly believe that our pupils are making links and building on their successes beyond these sessions, therefore increasing their motivation to develop in all areas of their life.”
Sarah Cason (Palmerston Primary)
“The pupils really enjoyed the sessions and gained a lot out of it. The structure was ideal for schools. The mix of theory and team challenges kept the pupils engaged throughout. You instantly put the pupils at ease and gave the pupils the right amount of encouragement to gain the confidence to take part and enjoy the activities. It was nice to see the pupils that normally wouldn’t have the confidence to work with people outside their friendship groups get stuck in and communicate with people they normally wouldn’t speak to.”
