Early Years Active training day

This project runs in partnership with colleagues from Active Futures, who promote: "Norfolk's ambitious strategy & vision to inspire young people to realise the significant and varied benefits of an active lifestyle. Bringing together the work of key stakeholders in the field, it outlines a collective vision for Norfolk's children and young people and provides information and resources to help you contribute to this important outcome."

The project recognises the Early Years Foundation Stage April 2017 publication that includes a footnote with a link to the Chief Medical Officer's guidance on physical activity: www.gov.uk/government/publications/uk-physical-activity-guidelines

We request that staff who attend the training day come dressed comfortably for activity. We also encourage two delegates per setting to attend where possible.

The Early Years Active Project will provide each delegate with training, resources and post training support.

All will contribute to the promotion of an EYA Champion within your setting, who will then be confident to personalise active projects. There is an expectation that these projects will be evidenced through case study documenting of their projects. The case studies will be promoted and used by the Setting and Norfolk's Active Futures working group to spotlight Outstanding physical activity practice for children.
