Updated January 2020 - Happy new year to everyone. Welcome to the Bishop Challoner School Games area activity page. Through the School Games we support 36 primary, secondary and special schools in and around Kings Heath, Moseley, Balsall Heath and Maypole to develop PE, school sport and physical activity. One of our main targets is to support schools and families to provide opportunities for young people to be physically active for 60 minutes per day, 7 days per week. Throughout these continuing, challenging times we shall be providing ideas for young people and families to stay physically active and have fun. Stay safe.

Here you will find ideas, links and signposting to resources etc. that will help us all to stay active in the home/garden. The resources are titled 'Primary', 'Secondary' and 'Adult' etc. to help you choose ones that are appropriate. Our Twitter page is @BCSGO, please follow us and show everyone how you are keeping active.  If you use Twitter please add #BackToSchoolGames
