Stand up Surrey Schools - Fri 26 April


We are encouraging all Surrey Schools to use chairs less and move more on Friday 26 April - On Your Feet Britain Day.

On #StandUpSurrey day we will be recording what is going on across the county, focussing on the seven Active areas associated with PALSS - travel, assembly, learning, bursts, playground, homework and staff.

We'll be promoting this day to the press and would love to hear how schools will mark the day. Please let us know by emailing us at Active.schools@surreycc.gov.uk using this template to help you.

children stretchingTo celebrate, prizes are on offer, including to those schools tweeting the best pictures with the hashtag #StandUpSurrey on 26 April.

Prizes for PALSS schools in the run up to SUS day include pedometers, a standing desk from sit-stand.com, a visit by Little Musketeers, a Synergy Dance session, Pleiades activity (Maths on the Move), Fitter Futures video and a visit from SCL.

To help pupils understand what the day is all about we're running a poster competition. Deadline for entries is 5 April. The winning design will be professionally printed and sent to every PALSS pledged school, while the winning pupil will receive a framed certificate along with a prize for their school.

PALSS pledged schools can find an example of a typical Active Day on page 7 of the resource booklet they received, as well as lots of ideas and case studies.
