The Healthy, Happy School.
ben Kirk is a passionate PE teacher and owner of Inspired Schools, whose mission is to create happier, healthier and more active schools that help end childhood physical inactivity and obesity. Hi company, Inspired Schools, designs playgrounds that all kids want to use, and delivers inclusive, fun, accessible lessons and activities to get every single child enjoying being active.
The UK has one of the highest rates of childhood obesity in Europe. Are you doing enough to create a lasting healthy legacy in your school? Primary years are a crucial time for our children. It is our responsibility to teach them healthy habits and make being active fun so we can set them up for a healthy lifestyle that will serve them through to adulthood. Sadly, a lot of schools aren’t doing this. Is yours? Not only are the kids’ physical and mental health levels poor, but it spills over into the classroom – affecting their ability to concentrate, settle down and achieve. This makes things harder for their teachers. We need to stop looking at physical education and academics as mutually exclusive. As a teacher, Ben Kirk, understands the pressures within schools. As a father of two young girls, he knows that kids naturally love being active and how important it is to set them up for a healthy life. This book revolutionises how your school should view and implement physical activity. Ben Kirk outlines proven, simple but effective activities that his company, Inspired Schools, have set up in hundreds of primary schools up and down the country which are all: • easy for the teachers to set up (in fact some become completely run by the pupils) • fun and inclusive for every child • easily woven into the school day • either free or very low cost. It is well within your power to give your pupils a better chance at a happier, healthier adulthood. I’m calling on you to join the Inspired Schools movement and give our kids a better future.

Book cover type
Simple, bright, bold with an upbeat feeling. Fun and positivity - the reader wants the children at their school to be happier, healthier and a better student.
What to avoid
This should NOT a book for children so nothing too childish. It is aimed at teachers and senior staff who want better results at their schools. No use of stock photographs. Illustrations/icons/vectors etc are fine
