Schools Active Movement will:
- Connect - Provide effective communication for the extended network to build the movement and develop relationships
- Advocate - Support members to advocate their work locally and unify to create a collective voice to raise the profile nationally
- Share - Share good practice to allow the extended network to become even more effective in their work.
Our board consists of representatives volunteering from organisations across the country and has at least one member from each of the regions of England. We also have representation from YST which this movement will be ‘connected’ too.
Membership is free of charge and open to not-for-profit organisations with schools as part of the governance structure. For members who are SGOs but are not offering an ‘extended offer’ to schools it must be noted that they are involved with SAM on a voluntary basis and not as part of the SGO task list.
Our effectiveness will be dependent on being able to represent and connect with as many people and organisations as possible. Help us achieve our vision of supporting the extended network to ensure children are Happier, Healthier and More Active by encouraging your colleagues you work with in your area to join us by forwarding this letter.
- Numbers of members/schools working with (as of 04 February 2021): 160 members working with 11,000 schools and 2.75 million children
