National School Sport Week

Monday 20 to Sunday 26 June 2022

Registrations for National School Sport Week 2022 are now open

For National School Sport Week 2022 we’re campaigning to ensure there is a place for every young person to belong in school sport.

Join us in our mission to guarantee there is a role for every young person in a school sports day this summer.

Our theme for 2022: Belonging – a place in sport for every child

School sport should be an important part of every child’s education and development – every child should feel they have a place to belong.

But for too many children this isn’t happening. They are left feeling alienated by sport, that it isn’t for them and they don’t have a place within it.

After the huge disruption of the past two years, the inequalities in young people’s health and activity levels have got worse.

There is so much that all young people can gain from school sport – connecting with others, developing important life skills and improving both their physical and mental health.

Join us this National School Sport Week in our drive to make sure that, when it comes to school sport, there is a place for every child.
