National School Sport Week (NSSW) is a huge celebration of everything that is great about PE and school sport, and we invite all schools across the United Kingdom to register to take part and #celebratePE.
Whether through traditional sports such as football, hockey or netball, or in alternative activities such as parkour, dance or treasure hunts, there is something out there for everyone to enjoy and be active.
National School Sport Week started in 2008, and last year saw over 5,000 schools and 1.8 million pupils take part! Want to find out more about what to expect, or pick up some ideas for 2017? Check out our Storify from last year's event.
The initiative, entitled Power of 3 to reflect the trio of PJ Masks heroes, aims to encourage young people to be more active and take part in regular physical activity and school sport.
During National School Sport Week, every primary school or nursery setting that registers will get free access to the PJ Masks Power of 3 activity pack full of branded activities inspired by the strengths of the three main characters: Catboy, Owlette and Gekko, a superhero trio of friends who embark on action-packed adventures using their superpowers of agility, strength and flight.
Please be advised if your school are one of the first 500 registered for the Early Years Day as part of National School Sport Week and have won a PJ Masks branded NSSW Activity pack, you will receive your pack in the post shortly to help with your planning.
We are also working in partnership with The Football Association against the backdrop of the England Lionesses heading to the UEFA Women’s Euros 2017 this summer, to engage teachers, schools and girls through European Championship 2017 resources.
All school and early year providers will receive the following:
- Full access to the website to download resources, including a guide to planning your activities, full of ideas and examples
- Downloadable certificates and pledges for your young people.
- Opportunity to win a school visit from a star athlete by tweeting or Instagraming your best NSSW themed photos
