It is clear that as a result of Covid-19, the activity levels of many children dropped significantly and their emotional wellbeing and mental health suffered. We believe the School Games is now more important than ever as a way to help children and young people to resocialise and improve their physical and emotional wellbeing. Here you will find a range of resources to support the delivery of a blended School Games offer. Remember, if you are a school in England please contact your local School Games Organiser for support.Continue reading
School Games Active Championships
The School Games Active Championships is a national activity campaign to help young people across the UK to #StayInWorkOut using the video-based platform powered by TopYa! New challenges will be available every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to engage with.
Primary and secondary-aged children can join the School Games Active Championships at any time with free active challenges being set via videos within a designated School Games version of the TopYa! Active app. All they need to do is download the app and type in the Invite Code 23880.
National Governing Bodies of Sport (NGBs) have worked alongside the School Games to build and develop a series of sport formats for intra and inter-school competition. These formats aim to encourage all young people to participate and are based on supporting young people to build and extend their skills and confidence.
During the period where Covid-19 has resulted in school closures and isolation, the National Governing Bodies have identified a number of activities that you can continue to work on to develop your skills and confidence for when things return to normal.
