Sit Less, Move More, Sleep Well Physical Activity Guidelines for Children and Young People

For school-aged children and young people (aged 5 to 17 years) high levels of physical activity, low levels of sedentary behaviour and sufficient sleep each day achieves greater health benefits.

A healthy 24 hours includes:

  • quality uninterrupted sleep of 9 to 11 hours per night for those aged 5 to 13 years and 8 to 10 hours per night for those aged 14 to 17 years, with consistent bed and wake-up times.
  • an accumulation of at least one hour a day of moderate to vigorous physical activity (incorporate vigorous physical activities and activities that strengthen muscles and bones, at least three days a week).
  • no more than two hours per day of recreational screen time.
  • for the remainder of the day:
    • sitting less, moving more – break up sitting time.
    • participating in structured and unstructured light physical activities.

Preserving sleep, trading indoor time for outdoor time, and replacing sedentary behaviours and light physical activity with additional moderate to vigorous physical activity can provide greater health benefits.

New Classroom Update

Fencing is being installed on the field for the new classrooms. The area in red will be fenced off and there will be no access to unauthorised people.

The school driveway running alongside Longmore Lane will only be a through access road to school. There is no parking or stopping on this driveway. This driveway must remain clear at all times.

If you’re dropping off or picking up your children from school you must use the Stop, Drop, Go area.
