Championing Active Schools

Improving pupil wellbeing using PE, school sport and physical activity (PESSPA)

Active Surrey provide services and opportunities for all KS1-5 maintained, academy and special schools. We support teachers in their use of PESSPA to boost the physical, emotional and social skills of their pupils and drive whole school improvement.

We work closely with local partners (Surrey County Council and Surrey Outdoor Learning Development (SOLD)) and national partners (Association for Physical Education (afPE), Youth Sport Trust, Sport England, UK Coaching) to provide a network of support, advice, training and resources.

For more detailed information on the type of support and training on offer, take a look at our Championing Active Schools brochure for 2021/22 academic year. Plain text version of the brochure. 

Further advice & discounts

Our comprehensive Membership package gives your school further access to resources, briefings and discounts which help you improve your provision and meet Government requirements. Take a look at our Active Schools Membership page for more details.
