PRIMARY CHANGE4LIFE CLUBS
Supported by Ofsted and the Department for Health, the development of Change4Life Clubs is just one of the ways in which Schools can help children become more active and understand the importance of a healthy active lifestyle. The School Sport Partnership support the development of Primary Change4Life Clubs, with training and support for deliverers across the District. This fits in with the wider strategy to support the County Council Healthier Child Programme and development of Healthy Active Lifestyles.
Wellingborough & East Northants was chosen to host the County Pilot for the wider development of Change4Life launched in March 2015, for 10 Primary Schools in Wellingborough and the surrounding area. This followed phase 1 of the programme in January 2014, the Partnership has now moved into phase 3 supporting a new group of Schools and deliverers that completed training in September 2015. The first Change4Life Festival for Primary Schools was held in July 2015. The format is now being extended to a Spring and Summer Festival for 2016 supported by Northamptonshire Sport.
