Helping children lead healthy lives
A ground-breaking programme to promote physical and mental wellbeing in primary schoolchildren has been officially unveiled. The Creating Active Schools (CAS) framework is the first UK-based whole-school physical activity framework of its kind. Developed with the expertise of 50 regional, national and international stakeholders, the framework has been published in the prestigious International Journal of Behavioural Nutrition and Physical Activity. Development of the CAS was led by Dr Andy Daly-Smith from the Carnegie School of Sport at Leeds Beckett University, working in close partnership with Dan Wilson from the Yorkshire Sport Foundation and Nicola Corrigan from Public Health England, Yorkshire and Humber.
