Thousands of schools, young people, parents, politicians, and businesses up and down the country will be raising awareness of the vital importance of PE, sport and play as National School Sport Week returns (20 to 26 June).
Evidence shows that unhappy and unhealthy children don’t learn well. Through its new strategy the Youth Sport Trust is working to build back play, physical activity and school sport in children’s lives, helping them to balance the demands of a digital age, and create societal change when it comes to the place and value of PE and school sport.
Coming together this week, thousands have pledged to raise awareness of the challenges ahead for young people's health and wider development, and importantly what can be done to build a sense of belonging for all children when they get active or play.
