Southfields SGO Area

The Wandsworth School Games is hosted by Southfields Academy and delivers a programme of events, competitions, teacher training courses and sport leadership opportunities for all schools in the London Borough of Wandsworth. School Games is national programme managed by the Youth Sport Trust on behalf of Sport England and delivered locally by Southfields Academy. In addition, to School Games, we are the YST Inclusion Lead School for Central London and also a hub for the FA Girls' Football School Partnerships Programme.

With our schools closing their gates to all pupils except those of key workers and the most vulnerable children,  the Wandsworth School Games has been set a new challenge  by the Youth Sport Trust and the Government.

The aim is to provide online activities and digital content to support every child in achieving 60 active minutes a day in line with the Chief Medical Officer's guidance. We will be using this platform to respond to the needs of schools still providing care to pupils as well as families at home.  Together with teachers, parents and carers we can help our children to reduce sedentary behaviour and boredom, and instead foster fun daily exercise habits and a positive use of technology.

We will be providing  guidance and access to  a variety of activities such as fitness, personal challenges, online contests, problem solving games and those which support physical competence, and mindfulness. The emphasis of the programme will be on fun and wellbeing, and it will make it easier for schools and families to navigate the brilliant range of content being made available daily by people like Joe Wicks and organisations like the Premier League and the National Governing Bodies of Sport.

Schools and families will be signposted to and online resources, activities and video's via numerous media platforms. Places to go to:
