Students and their families at The Radclyffe School will be getting active during National School Sports Week (20-26 June).
Though in-school sport days can’t take place this summer, the Youth Sport Trust is taking its annual National School Sport Week campaign beyond the school gates to parents and families – reinvented as National School Sport Week at Home.
With social distancing in place, students and staff at The Radclyffe School will be getting involved in the week by participating in a number of challenges.
School Sports Co-ordinator Mr Finc said, “Though we can’t be in school to celebrate the week, we have activities for all abilities. We know that school sport and PE play a vital role in enhancing our young people’s wellbeing. Right now, students are missing their friends and the sense of connection they get through sport”.
The Youth Sport Trust resources give great suggestions everything from athletics, aiming sports, team and adventure sports and artistic activities. I’d encourage everyone to get involved and find something they enjoy”.
Youth Sport Trust Chief Executive Ali Oliver said, “The Youth Sport Trust is thrilled that the Radclyffe school is backing National School Sport Week at Home to ensure no child misses out on their school sports day this summer.
Sport has such a crucial role to play in promoting young people’s wellbeing and this has never been more apparent than it is now. After weeks of isolation we hope that National School Sport Week at Home 2020 can help bring families, communities, schools and sports clubs back together.”
Students can register to take part and will receive videos and activity cards to help them plan a series of challenges across the week for their families, neighbours, friends or colleagues.
