Active Children Conference

Learning and development event to help give Oxfordshire children an active start in life.

The 2019 Oxfordshire Active Children Conference focuses on how schools and early years settings can effectively use their resources to have a positive impact on the attainment, health and wellbeing of children.

Evidence shows that active children learn better, experience better mental wellbeing than inactive children, are at lower risk of a range of diseases and develop important characteristics like resilience, determination and perseverance.

However with 79% of children in Oxfordshire not getting enough physical activity for their health we need to work together to improve the lives of those children in most need.

An exciting programme of workshops, exhibitors and speakers will equip school teachers, early years practitioners and PE leads with the resources, ideas and inspiration to make their setting more active.

Oxfordshire will play host to the OVO Energy Women's Tour for the next three years, starting with the county's first-ever stage of Britain's leading professional women's stage race on day three of the 2019 event on Wednesday 12 June.

Stage three of the high-profile British Cycling and UCI Women's World Tour event has been secured for Oxfordshire by the county council and five districts in a three-year partnership with the race organisers SweetSpot that will bring major economic and health benefits to the county.

The stage will start in Henley-on-Thames and end at one of the county's most iconic locations, the UNESCO World Heritage site of Blenheim Palace.
