skipping with healthy schools

healthy schools
Physical Activity, as one of the four themes of the Healthy Schools programme, is where skip-hop can support your Healthy School

  • Physical activity contributes significantly to the being healthy national outcome for children
  • Children/young people are provided with a range of opportunities to be physically active
  • They understand how physical activity can help them to be more healthy, and how physical activity can improve and be a part of their every day life

  • A visit from skip-hop can give all your pupils the chance to skip, a skill which they can then take into the playground and home.  We can also provide training for teachers, lunchtime playground supervisors and run a session after school for children and their parents/carers to attend.

    Skipping is a skill which, once learned, is never forgotton and the skipping benefits are many.

    Emotional Health and Wellbeing
  • Emotional health and wellbeing contributes significantly to all five national outcomes for children and young people: being healthy, staying safe, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution and economic wellbeing
  • The promotion of positive emotional health and wellbeing helps children and young people to understand and express their feelings, build their confidence and emotional resilience, and therefore their capacity to learn

  • From experience of working with over 500 000 children, we know that all children achieve at the end of a skip-hop workshop and the smile on the face of a skipper says much about their state of mind at the end of a session.
