Our fit4schools programme is a fantastic way to maximise the impact and outcomes of the extra sport premium funding.

Fit4schools provided workshops across the school to support the children’s understanding of food and nutrition.  Fit4schools staff helped the children  link their physical fitness to diet as they were able to discuss the impact of food on performance. The staff were knowledgeable and engaging – as a result we have rewritten our food and nutrition policy inspired by the workshops. Ruth Leach, Headteacher, St Blaise C of E School
