On this day, Active Derbyshire and the School Games Organiser network are asking schools to focus on making sure all pupils are as physically active as they can be during the day. We are also asking schools to embrace an active school ethos beyond 25th September, if not already embedded, to improve the physical, emotional and social wellbeing of young people. We want physical activity to be prominent in every school’s policy and vision.
Schools will receive a free toolkit which has been designed to give primary school practitioners ideas on how to include short bursts of physical activity in the school day in addition to opportunities provided through curriculum PE, active breaks and lunchtimes and before and after school clubs. Also included are some links to free online resources and national partners who can also provide ideas, support and continuous professional development along with us, here at SHAPE, as your School Games Organisers.
