Huff & Puff

The aim of the Huff & Puff initiative is to promote physical activity in schools by structuring informal play at lunch and break times, to enable pupils to participate in a range of traditional and non-traditional games and activities.

The Initiative has been enhanced by the training of playground leaders, who will lead playground games, hand out equipment and buddy individuals in order to create fun, active and safe playgrounds. Lunchtime supervisors have also been trained to manage the playground leaders and create playground games.

Research evidence from other similar projects has shown that pupils are not only healthier by being physically active but incidents of antisocial behaviour at lunchtime have been significantly reduced. Pupils are also more responsive to study in the afternoon.
