National School Sport Week (26-30th June 2017)

The Kent Sport & Physical Activity Service would love for schools to really embrace the National School Sports Week this year. Obesity levels are rising at an alarming rate across the country and this is a perfect opportunity to engage your pupils in fun, physical activity.

The National School Sport Week (NSSW) is a huge celebration of everything that is great about PE and school sport, and the Youth Sports Trust (YST) are inviting all schools across the United Kingdom to register to take part and #celebratePE.

Whether through traditional sports such as football, hockey or netball, or in alternative activities such as parkour, dance or treasure hunts, there is something out there for everyone to enjoy and be active.

National School Sport Week started in 2008, and last year saw over 5,000 schools and 1.8 million pupils take part! Want to find out more about what to expect, or pick up some ideas for 2017? Check out YST’s Storify from last year's event.

This year, the YST will be partnering with Entertainment One and TV superheroes PJ Masks. The initiative, entitled Power of 3 to reflect the trio of PJ Masks heroes, aims to encourage young people to be more active and take part in regular physical activity and school sport. 

All school and early year providers will receive the following:

• Full access to the website to download resources, including a guide to planning your activities, full of ideas and examples

• Downloadable certificates and pledges for your young people.

• Opportunity to win a school visit from a star athlete by tweeting or Instagraming your best NSSW themed photos

You are also encouraged to share your stories with others by following @YouthSportTrust and using #NSSW and #celebratePE on twitter.
