ABSTRACT

Background and study aims Many children in the UK do not meet the recommended levels of physical activity. The end of primary school (Year 5 & 6) has been identified as a key period of decline in physical activity among children. After school hours are recognised as an important opportunity for children to increase physical activity. As teaching assistants (TAs) are a resource in all primary schools, an after-school physical activity programme delivered by trained TAs could be a cost-effective method of promoting physical activity to Year 5 and 6 children. Action 3:30 is a study designed to examine the possibility of a new after-school programme to other schools. The programme has three elements. Firstly, we will develop and deliver a training programme (based on the delivery of after-school physical activity sessions) for TAs. Secondly, we will develop a course of 40 session plans that can be used by the TAs to provide after-school activities for Year 5 and 6 children. Thirdly, the course will be delivered by TAs to Year 5 and 6 children. We will supply each school with equipment to deliver the sessions, and pay schools for the supply teaching costs they incur when TAs attend the training. We will also pay TAs their hourly rate to deliver the after-school sessions. Who can participate? We aim to recruit 600 year 5/6 pupils (who are physically able to participate in PE lessons) and 40 teaching assistants from 20 schools within Bristol City Council, Bath and North East Somerset Council, and South Gloucestershire Council. What does the study involve? To examine the effect of the programme on children, there will be 10 schools that receive the TA training and the after-school sessions, and 10 schools that do not. Schools will be randomly assigned to the respective groups in November 2012. Data will be collected from children participating in Action 3:30 at three time points. Before the after-school club starts (September-October 2012), during the last few weeks that the clubs run (June-July 2013), and 3 months later (September-October 2013). At each time point we will collect the following data: 1. Physical Activity: Children will be asked to wear an accelerometer (a device that measures physical activity levels) for five days. This data will provide information on the amount of time children are sedentary, and how much time they spend doing moderate and vigorous physical activity. 2. Psychological Factors: Children will be asked to complete questionnaires about their current physical activity patterns and motivation for being physically active. TAs will also be asked to complete questionnaires based on their experience of the project. What are the possible benefits and risks of participating? The schools, teaching assistants and pupils that take part will all receive immediate direct benefit. Schools will receive free training for two teaching assistants, which improves the skills of the workforce. Schools will receive £200 of/for physical activity equipment and an Action 3:30 Leaders’ Manual, with 40 session plans. We anticipate that schools will use these resources not only for year 5/6 pupils, but for the whole school. Teaching assistants will receive expert training and benefit from being paid to deliver the 40 after-school sessions. Pupils from ten schools will receive a free after-school physical activity club for 20 weeks, which aims to improve their motivation for and participation in physical activity. All pupils get to take part in an informative and exciting process of data collection that uses iPods (for questionnaires) and accelerometers (to record physical activity levels). We anticipate few risks directly attached to participating in the Action 3:30 project. As with all physical activity projects, there is a risk of injury to pupils through engagement in physical activity. Where is the study run from? The Centre for Exercise, Nutrition and Health Sciences in the School for Policy Studies, at the University of Bristol (UK). When is the study starting and how long is it expected to run for? April 2012 to August 2014. Who is funding the study? Medical Research Council (UK). Who is the main contact? Professor Russell Jago russ.jago@bristol.ac.uk More... »
