The + Sport Move and Learn Project is a sport initiative designed to encourage active lifestyles that has already reached over 15 million children around the world. Now in its fourth year, the programme has to date been delivered in 776 schools, with over 43,000 children impacted. To build on this success, this year a further 615 schools and 36,900 children will be reached.

The programme content has been developed by nutritional and educational and sporting experts in line with the recommendations in the Government’s Eatwell Guide and its learning outcomes are in line with the National Curriculum for PSHE and Science.

Cardiff City FC Foundation recognise the challenges faced by the Cwm Taf Health Board area in terms of the growing number of health concerns and below national average levels of physical activity. As a Foundation, we feel we are well-placed to engage and inspire young people in the area, ease the problems faced and help build physically active communities through the +Sport Move and Learn programme.

Over the course of six weeks, children from year 5 classes spend 45 minutes in the classroom learning about the body, nutrition and the importance of exercise, through participating in interactive activities. The second half of the 90-minute session is dedicated to playing football, dodgeball or handball, with two weeks spent on each sport.

Cardiff City FC Foundations, Director of Sport & Health, Simon Stephens is a huge supporter of the +Sport Move and Learn Project, saying: “The programme offers a really fun and interactive way to engage thousands of children each year and educate them about eating a balanced diet and being physically active. I’m extremely proud to offer Cardiff City FC’s brand to support and help such an important programme achieve even more success.”
