National School Sports Week

Monday 19 to Sunday 25 June 2023

National School Sports Week is back for 2023, and this year we want to make sure that all children in the UK are active for the Chief Medical Officers’ recommended minimum time of 60 minutes a day. That’s why this year, along with our campaign partner Sports Direct, we’re asking you to ‘play for fun, play for 60’!

375,333 Pledges Made!

We want families, schools and partner organisations to take the #PledgeToPlay today. The pledge supports the government ask that children are active within school for 30 minutes a day, and then outside of school for at least another 30 minutes, supporting every child to reach the minimum amount of 60 active minutes. For disabled young people, the Chief Medical Officers’ recommendation is for a minimum of 20 minutes of physical activity every day, including strength and balance activity three times a week.

Once you’ve pledged, you’ll be given access to a range of supporting materials and resources to help you achieve your active minutes. 

Our resources are tailored to suit all age ranges with separate resources to support schools, families and organisations.
