CORONAVIRUS AND SCHOOL GAMES

Due to current restrictions on physical distancing face to face competition is on hold. The Virtual Surrey School Games enables intra and inter-school competition to continue across the county.

Autumn Term 2020

This terms programme is now live - see launch video.

The Autumn term may be difficult for some young people, so we've designed this term's Virtual Surrey School Games around four principles:

  1. Giving all young people attending school in Surrey an opportunity to participate in physical activity for 60 minutes a day, in a fun and interactive way.
  2. Keeping the School Games offer simple to encourage schools and young people to participate with a focus on those from low socio-economic areas, BAME, SEND and those transitioning from Year 6 to 7.
  3. Providing resources that offer competitive & leadership opportunities.
  4. Supporting young people's mental and physical wellbeing and their reintegration back into (new) school life by helping to create a positive and active environment.

The Virtual School Games programme for the Autumn term focuses on four activities, released in two waves:

Sport

Rounders

Panathlon

Athletics

Dance

Why has this activity been chosen?

Focused on teamwork, connections and building friendships, in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Supporting individuals who may be suffering from loneliness and a lack of belonging.

 

 

Activities focus on inclusive participation through multi-sport activities. These will inspire young people with SEND (Special Education Needs and Disability) and develop their social interaction and personal skills.

Focusing on personal best achievements, building resilience and developing fundamental movement skills for those who may be lacking competency and fitness from being away from the school environment for a prolonged time.

Creative dance provides many physical and mental benefits; mobility, flexibility, co-ordination, self confidence and self-esteem. Exploring emotions and feelings through storytelling and music can assist those experiencing trauma.
