Abstract IntroductionSchools and Colleges are recognised as settings with easy access to increasing the physical activity levels of children. Many organisations offer schools products or approaches to do this, but teachers do not know which are the most effective. Public Health England developed a resource to help schools to adopt an evidence based approach to this challenge. MethodAn evidence review was conducted. The key messages concerning effective practice and the links between physical activity and educational attainment were identified and distilled into a framework of eight principles. A consultation process that included practitioners, stakeholder organisations and school pupils refined the framework. The FrameworkThe eight principles of the framework apply to all aspects of school life including curriculum provision, extra curricular activities and the physical environment. Public Health ImpactThe principles were published alongside practice examples and national policies in 2016.It has subsequently been used by policy makers, school programme developers and schools to develop and deliver programmes that embed physical activity throughout the school day. The document has also informed policy development at a national level. It was updated in 2018 which demonstrates its continued value as a resource in an environment where there is significant policy development. External funding details Public Health England funded and commissioned the Association of Colleges Sport and Youth Sport Trust to carry out the evidence review, framework design and consultation activity. Public Health England published the document “What Works in Schools and Colleges to Increase Physical Activity”.
