Free Home Learning Resources

YST Free Home Learning Resources
The Youth Sport Trust is a national children’s charity, on a mission to pioneer new ways of using sport to improve children’s wellbeing and give them a brighter future. Whether you’re a teacher, a parent or a carer, we want to work with you.

About Us

Our new YouGov research reveals that 62% of parents believe pupil wellbeing is more important than academic attainment.

In this our 25th Anniversary year we are proud to launch the Well School Movement whose aim is to create a national network of schools and partners, sharing best practice and helping each other to create an environment in which wellbeing is placed at the heart of every school.

We have a range of innovative resources to help more children enjoy the benefits of PE and physical activity both in and outside of school.

Our fantastic field team works with individual schools, helping them to embed the values and learning from sport through the whole school and providing CPD for PE teachers - you can find out more about our membership offer here.

We work with a huge range of partners on over 50 diverse programmes in 100s of schools up and down the country, improving the lives of young people, empowering them and teaching them invaluable skills such as leadership, resilience and empathy.

We'd love to stay in touch, please sign-up if you'd like to receive a monthly newsletter about our work.

Our Free Resources

We’ve made these free resources available to support you during this difficult time – we hope you find them helpful. Please adapt them to suit your home environment and the needs of your young people, considering the wider skills each activity is aimed to develop. General physical activity can also provide valuable, fun breaks in the day and support wider learning.

If you would like to help us in our mission to support the mental and physical wellbeing of all young people, please consider making a donation to our work either via text code or through our charity page.

Thank you to everyone who ran, walked, skipped, rowed and Zumba-ed as part of the 2.6 Challenge to raise much needed funds for the Youth Sport Trust. We have been humbled by your amazing response, your creativity and your support for the wellbeing of our nation’s young people. Please take a look at our Wakelet for an overview of some of the action.

Early Years Resources

The current Coronavirus pandemic means children are moving far less at a vital stage of their physical and emotional development. Getting your children moving more and making activities fun in the early years will give your child a great start in life and get them ready for school.

Wednesday Webinars

Welcome to the first in our series of YST Wednesday Webinars. In the coming weeks, we will be covering PE related themes and wider perspectives in the world of education linked to the current challenges parents, teachers and anyone else in the wider world of education might be facing. Click on the video to hear from our PE and Achievement team about how we are supporting home learning for physical education.

We then covered wellbeing and heard from the wider YST education team and some guest speakers about how to use PE and physical activity as a tool for supporting mental and physical wellbeing and personal development. They considered the changing educational landscape, social norms, the impact of the current pandemic and how we can use PE to support young people in the modern era and post COVID-19. You can sign up for next week or watch previous content using the links below.
