About:

A-life can help with your healthy schools week, science week or Olympics theme by visiting your school with our unique programme of hands-on workshops that bring the curriculum to life.

We are a leading provider of Healthy Living Workshops and Fun Fitness sessions for primary schools. We help bring the curriculum to life with hands-on, interactive activities that are accessible for all ages and abilities and have been carefully planned and prepared to meet many of the objectives set out in the Science, PE and PSHE curriculum 2014 (please see attached). Our comprehensive coverage, over 10 years’ experience and motivational coaches ensure a memorable day for pupils and outstanding feedback from staff.

Our workshops include:

Hands-on Healthy Workshop – a 1 hour hands-on session for up to 60 pupils (Nur-Yr 6) that engages and motivates children as they gain new learning and embed existing knowledge on the topic of the human body and keeping healthy. Topics include: healthy eating, getting active, hygiene, sleep, teeth, smoking, alcohol & drugs and lots more.


Fun Fitness Sessions - designed to give all pupils a full body workout at the same time as reinforcing the key messages of keeping healthy from the hands-on workshop. We provide a fun-packed, non-stop, fast-paced session that motivates pupils to understand that keeping active is a vital part of staying healthy and can be a lot of fun. (Nur-Yr 6)


Alcohol & Drug Awareness Workshop – a safe environment for pupils to begin considering this sensitive subject, which many schools and families find difficult to tackle. Our experienced coaches, with hands-on activities and anecdotal stories, will provide a comfortable and relaxed space in which to explore the issues surrounding drugs and alcohol, as well as the associated issues of peer pressure and knowing how to make informed, sensible decisions. (Yr 5-8 only)

To embed the learning further and achieve maximum impact, we also offer:

Staff Training
Parent Sessions
Online 7-day Healthy Challenge

Here are a few reasons why schools highly value what we deliver and continue to book us year after year:

Experience

  • We have taught well over 500,000 children in more than 750 schools over the last 11 years with outstanding feedback and a 5 star rating almost every time.
  • We are a leading provider of healthy workshops, working with a number of councils and a recognised supplier under the Healthy Schools London programme.

Value for money

  • We can cater for 60 pupils at a time in each of our sessions (30 pupils for drugs and alcohol workshop)
  • On average, children receive two sessions with an A-life coach in one day for only £2.75 per child (depending on the programme / timetable booked by the school - other options include 1 session only for £1.65 per child)
  • Our extensive curriculum provision ensures maximum impact and reduces the need for further costly providers or trips
  • A day of workshops includes complimentary access to our 7-day healthy challenge, an interactive online quiz with questions and challenges to follow up the teaching
  • We provide letters for parents, a personalised school report after each visit and content to use in your school newsletter or website
  • Sessions can potentially be subsidised by using School Sports Funding, Pupil Premium funding or PTA resources

Bringing the curriculum to life

  • Workshops and fitness sessions cover a large number of curriculum objectives in a one hour session
  • Differentiated activities and tasks have been carefully designed to be accessible for all ages and abilities, from those with severe SEN up to the brightest year 6 pupils
  • Specialist knowledge and carefully researched activities challenge and stretch children beyond their existing knowledge about the human body and healthy living
  • Hands-on, interactive resources are stimulating and educational

Whole school benefit

  • Long term benefits of the messages we deliver include improvements in pupil behaviour, concentration levels, academic performance and even attendance.
  • Home / school partnership is supported as we invite parents to join in with our ‘7 day healthy challenge’, encourage them to attend the workshops and provide letters to send home explaining what their children have been learning

 

Ticking all the right boxes?

  • A-life meets the requirement of the National Curriculum (2014) as we contribute towards ‘(preparing) pupils…for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life’ and to teach them ‘…the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle’
  • A-life will contribute towards Ofsted expectations that pupils will be offered a ‘broad and balanced curriculum that promotes their good behaviour and safety and their spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development’.
  • With safeguarding being a top priority of schools, A-life meets Ofsted’s advice to schools that the ‘teaching about safety and relationships as part of PSHE education contributes to how schools approach the safeguarding of pupils’.
  • The Government has set out healthy living as a priority, with financial input into local educational authorities and schools with the aim to ‘improve the quality of PE and sport’ in schools and to ‘reduce obesity’ amongst children.

We look forward to hearing how we can help your school.
