For the last two years, pupils at Bishop Vaughan have signed up to the ‘ACTIVE Project’ which is based around empowering children to be more active, more often. It has been an overwhelming success with our pupils being given vouchers to try many new activities for free. ACTIVE’s findings have been published in the BMJ Open this week. These findings are from the focus groups we did with the pupils.
