The National Children's Bureau (NCB), works to help improve child health outcomes and reduce child health inequalities. This includes supporting the agenda to tackle childhood obesity following the publication of the government's Childhood obesity: a plan for action in 2016. The NCB undertake this work in our role as Health and Care Voluntary Sector Strategic Partner. 
NCB is seeking examples of programmes and interventions that support children in primary education to be healthy and physically active, particularly those benefiting children who experience health disadvantages and those living in areas of deprivation. We are interested in hearing about how primary schools, local authority public health teams and voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations have worked together. The deadline by 01 March 2017
