Bishop Challoner SGO Area

Welcome to the Bishop Challoner School Games area activity page. 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 areas of work is to support schools and families to provide opportunities for young people to be physically active 60 minutes per day, 7 days per week. Throughout these challenging times we shall be providing ideas for young people and families to stay physically active and have fun.

This profile will provide ideas, links and signposting to resources etc. that will help us all to stay active in the home/garden. I have titled the resources 'Primary', 'Secondary' and 'Adult' etc. to help you choose ones that are age related. Our Twitter page is @BCSGO, please follow us and show everyone how you are keeping active.  If you use Twitter please add #StayHomeStayActive and #StayInWorkOut to your tweets and add @yourschoolgames also.
