This year, the Summit will maintain its focus on our three key pledges: Tackling Inequalities, embedding Youth Engagement and ensuring Physical Literacy. The morning will involve sharing of best practice examples, highlighting innovative solutions and lessons learned from across School Games, including an NGB/NDSO Jamboree which brings to life how competition and events can be used to address the needs of young people. The afternoon will feature a range of sessions that demonstrate approaches to address the pledges and develop the skills and expertise through which to do so. The 3 strands of session content are:

  • How we can Tackle Inequalities and ensure we are reaching those who need us most?
  • Youth Engagement and the importance of involving young people in creating their offer.
  • Understanding Physical Literacy and innovative ways to create positive experiences.

Workshop/Session Programme

The workshop/session programme within each strand has been designed using Bloom's taxonomy to meet the varying experience, knowledge, understanding, and learning styles across the network. You are free to select any session, but we have recommended sessions we feel will be most suitable based on the ‘I can’ statement that you feel best matches your current knowledge and experience (please refer to tables in each strand of the programme).
