The science behind active learning

Activity promotes better learning and behaviour across the school, whilst improving physical health and mental well-being.

  • Just 30 minutes activity every day increases attainment by up to 12%
  • Just 20 minutes of exercise increases brain processes and enhances cognitive control for up to 1 hour
  • Active children develop strong self-esteem and become happier learners
  • Active schools perform better on standardisation tests, with higher levels of progress and achievement
  • Physically active classrooms are easier to manage
