Championing Active Schools

Using PE, school sport and physical activity (PESSPA) as a tool to improve pupil wellbeing

Active Surrey provide PESSPA services and opportunities for all KS1-5 maintained, academy and special schools. Our aim is to help teachers boost the physical, emotional and social skils of those in their care.

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.

How we can help

We support schools in developing their physical activity provision through staff development and knowledge sharing as well as by directly offering programmes for your pupils.

Our 'Schools Wheel' summarises our key services, including our Membership offer which gives schools further events support and discounts off staff traning. You can get further information on specific topics by clicking on the relevant page links below.
