Active School Planner

What is the Active Schools Planner?

The Active Schools Planner is a tool for primary schools to track and improve physical activity levels in their pupils.

How the Active School Planner works?

  • Registering is quick and simple. The first time you login you can choose to set up ‘groups’ that are relevant for you in your role in school. This will help you to use this site effectively to review and plan your levels of physical activity.
  • From your dashboard you can access a number of features in the site to help review and plan to become an active school.
  • Feature descriptions and help videos are available to help you use them effectively.
  • The Activity Heatmaps feature is a self-review tool to be used in your journey to become an active school. The first time that you use the Activity Heatmaps you will be able to build and customise your heatmap to mirror your school timetable. This will only take a few minutes, and only needs to be done once. Finished heatmaps can be copied and shared with others in your school to save time. 
  • Finishing an activity heatmap will take you to the action planning tool to help plan how you will increase activity at a pace that is suitable for you. The tool will make a series of suggestions as to what else you might choose to do. 
  • Once you've decided on your next steps, the tool will produce a summary report and your actions will appear on your dashboard as a reminder. These can be used as evidence for your PE and School Sport Premium funding and the School Games Mark.

Why it matters?

  • Physical activity improves physical, social and emotional health & wellbeing.
  • Children should aim to do at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day to achieve the full health benefits.
  • 4 out of 5 children are not active enough, contributing to increased inflammation, obesity and other non-communicable diseases

Active pupils perform better

  • Brain function Improves
  • Behaviour Improves
  • Attendance & school engagement Improves
  • Academic results Improves
