Welcome to February’s newsletter. This edition features new activity cards, UK CMOs’ disabled children’s activity guidelines and a new research project.
New activity cards deliver inclusive, challenging, and fun PE sessions
Activity Alliance and partners release series of inclusive PE activity cards for teachers and school staff. The cards are jam-packed with fun games and activities, and support teachers to ensure their PE sessions are inclusive and accessible for all school pupils.
UK CMOs publish first activity guidelines for disabled children
Disabled children and young people will be supported to be more physically active following the publication of new guidelines from the UK Chief Medical Officers (CMOs). The guidance, which recommends daily levels of physical activity, will support disabled children and young people to improve their physical and mental health throughout their lives.
