National Schools Sports Week 2020

National School Sport Week at School/Home 2020


The annual National School Sport Week campaign took place from the 20th June until the 26th and was a celebration of the important role of Physical Education and school sport.


This year, the Youth Sport Trust has teamed up with Sky Sports to run a national campaign which aimed to unite the country - families, schools, sport and businesses - in a celebration of the power of sport to bring people together, even during isolation.


The UK-wide campaign challenged people to take on their families, friends and neighbours in virtual sporting challenges – helping them to connect in an unprecedented period of school closures and social distancing.


The campaign builds on the Youth Sport Trust’s #StayHomeStayActive campaign which has been supporting schools, parents and young people with daily free resources to get young people moving and enjoying the PE curriculum while at home.


At school we had a PE week filled with activities and games, which we also combined with this years sports day games. The children also learnt about the importance of togtherness, inclusivity and wellbeing. The children competed in a number of challenges across the week, representing their house colours, we then averaged the scores to announce this years KS1/KS2 sports day winners. Congratulations to Blue house in KS1 and Yellow house in KS2 for winning this years Sports Day.


Children at home can also complete the NSSW activity booklet that we completed in school. Please see below for further resources and activities.


We would like to encourage as many children and parents to get involved, there are a number of resources below to help stay active. For more information and resources please visit
