Our 2024 Conference: Physical Activity and Movement - The Curriculum and Beyond! kindly supported by New Balance.

Over 90 primary school head teachers and PE Leads came together for our dedicated Children and Young People conference on Thursday 7th March 2024 at North Lakes Hotel, Penrith.

This event was an invaluable and unique opportunity to hear from a range of guest speakers and schools sharing best practice and to participate in numerous workshops.

The event provided delegates with an opportunity to: -

  • Understand the issues and challenges children and young people face in Cumbria, and the importance of physical and mental wellbeing. 
  • Understand Sport England’s approach to increasing activity amongst children and young people through their Uniting the Movement Strategy, and their recent work on Physical Literacy. 
  • Learn about whole school approaches to physical activity and the impact they can have on a wide range of outcomes. 
  • Develop practice and understanding through the provision of specific CPD opportunities.

Many thanks to our keynote speakers; Joanne Moss, Strategic Policy Lead for Children and Young People at Sport England, Colin Cox, Director of Public Health and Communities at Cumberland Council and Elaine Wyllie MBE Founder of The Daily Mile.
