Call To Revive Play At UK Schools To Tackle 'Escalating Crisis' In Child Health

Campaigners studying play and children are calling for major focus on reviving play ih schools to tackle an "escalating crisis" in child mental and physical health.

The 'Plan for Play" launched on Tuesday outlines a vision for the Department For Education to require every school to have a play plan that would be subject to Ofsted inspection.

“There is a current and escalating crisis in childhood. Children are less fit and less active. They are increasingly suffering from mental health problems at a scale we have never seen before.

“Schools are now like a wildlife reserve for childhood – they could be the space that saves some of what is special for children. Even if this is the only play they ever experience it can make a significant difference in their lives – and for some children it really is the only play they get.” Said Michael Follett.

So What Can We Do?

At Saas Schools we believe in nurturing the holistic well-being of young children, addressing both their mental and physical health needs. Our innovative products, Energy Wall and MoodTracker, are designed with a deep understanding of the challenges children face in today's fast-paced world.

 Energy Wall serves as a dynamic platform that encourages physical activity and engagement. By transforming exercise into an interactive and enjoyable experience, it not only promotes physical fitness but also enhances cognitive function. Through fun games and activities, children can release pent-up energy, fostering a healthy outlet for their natural vitality.

Complementing the mental aspect of our approach is MoodTracker, a tool designed to support emotional awareness and regulation. In a world where children are often bombarded with stimuli and pressures, it's essential to provide them with tools to navigate their feelings effectively. MoodTracker empowers children to express and understand their emotions, fostering emotional intelligence from an early age. By regularly tracking their moods and emotions, children develop self-awareness and resilience, laying a foundation for lifelong mental well-being.

Together, Energy Wall and MoodTracker form a comprehensive solution that addresses the interconnected nature of mental and physical health. By promoting active lifestyles and emotional intelligence in tandem, we aim to equip children with the skills and habits they need to thrive in today's world.

Through our commitment to innovation and holistic wellness, we at [Your Company Name] are proud to contribute to the positive development of young minds, fostering a generation of healthy, balanced individuals.
