Lloyds TSB National School Sport Week kicked off on Monday 29th June with over 10,400 schools and school sport partnerships across Britain are participating in a week of activities.
While some schools are theming lessons such as art and maths around sport, others will replace timetabled classroom lessons with Olympic focused PE classes.
All activities are designed to motivate pupils and fulfil objectives for PE and school sport using the inspiration of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and Values.
The aim is simple: To help excite and motivate pupils to do more sport by celebrating and profiling all that’s been achieved in PE within schools, and launching new sport based initiatives.
Pupils across the UK have made a Sports Pledge which will help them commit to achieving their goals during the week, gain support from their families and help teachers support pupils on their journeys.
The week will inspire pupils to participate, perform and lead in sport and physical activity. It also offers the opportunity for teachers to embed the Olympic and Paralympic Values in whatever activities they do.
Lloyds TSB National School Sport Week is integral to the delivery of the Government’s PE and Sport Strategy for Young People and contributing towards the target of offering young people five hours of high quality PE and sport a week by 2012.
