I went to Birchfield Primary School this morning...

It was great to visit this wonderful little school and to see some of the outstanding things Philip Turner and his team are doing to release the magic and make a real difference to their children, their families and the community. I particularly enjoyed the Skills Challenge Games and the Wake Up and Shake Up session which the children organised and managed and very clearly demonstrated the school's commitment to ensuring that the children are healthy and active. I think that we must convince every child that they can be a reader, a storyteller, a poet, a mathematician, an artist and I believe that every child and young person should engage in an hour of rigorous activity every day to contribute to their health and well-being.

It is great to visit a school doing such fantastic work in this area and achieving brilliant standards at the same time.
