Active Schools Week 2019
Monday 1st - Friday 5th April 2019
Following its success across the district last year, Active Schools Week will once again be returning in 2019 between Monday 1st April and Friday 5th April.
As part of the week, schools are encouraged to embrace the challenge of turning their school into an Active School, embracing physical activity as a tool for enhancing learning.
#SNDGetActive Teachers Challenge
The 2018 Active Lesson pledge count:
58 Active Lessons
To celebrate Active Schools Week, we are challenging our amazing teaching staff across the district to get their pupils up and moving as part of their daily learning.
Our #SNDGetActive Teachers Challenge will see schools tasked with planning and delivering 'active lessons' during the schools day. These lessons will see students becoming active and on their feet for a minimum of 50% of their normal classroom lesson time. The challenge will encourage teaching staff to consider their role in promoting active lifestyles and minimising sedentary behaviour within the school environment.
Participating schools will be invited to pledge a number of active lessons they have delivered during the week which will contribute to a district total. We are challenging the district as a whole to respond to our call to arms and see if they help us beat last year's target of 58 Active Lessons across all schools and create as many hours of active learning as possible and enhance children' learning whilst boosting physical activity.
