Overview of the main JUMP-in components and responsible implementers

PFSA monitoring instrument yearly assessing and registering children's level of PA, body mass index and motor skills. PFS facilitates referral to tailored interventions in a structured way, eg, motor remedial teaching, physiotherapy and youth healthcare.
School sport clubsIn or near the school premises, structural and easily accessible school sports activities are offered on a daily basis. During school hours, children get acquainted with a variety of sports. Subsequently, they can join the club during out-of-school hours. Existing local providers of physical activities and sports clubs are involved.
‘The Class Moves!’Method (calendars) offering recurrent breaks for PA, relaxation and posture exercises, during regular lessons. For each grade, materials are adapted to the level of sensor–motor development. The aim is to make PA a daily habit, increase enjoyment of PA and contribute to a healthy sensor-motor development.
‘This is your way to Move!’Personal workbooks for children and their parents, with assignments to perform in class and at home, and an instruction-book for the school staff. The method is especially aimed at raising awareness of the importance of PA for health and at improving self-efficacy, social support, self-regulation and planning skills, of both children and parents.
Parental information servicesContains several options: information meetings, courses and sports activities for parents. To reach parents, multimedial instruments and a JUMP-in information movie are developed. Personal approach of parents from high-risk children is facilitated by the PFS. Existing structures such as language courses or coffee meetings are used to maximise attendance.
Extra care for children at riskChildren detected by the PFS who have motor and movement disabilities or who experience hampering factors in their PA behaviour (such as overweight), receive additional adapted physical education lessons (Club Extra) or motor remedial teaching, given by a qualified teacher. If necessary, parents of overweight or obese children receive an invitation for consultation from the youth healthcare or hospital.
