Children and young people should be physically active for at least an average of 60 minutes per day across the week. Despite the many challenges that COVID-19 brings, it is vitally important that children and young people continue to be active for their physical and mental wellbeing. In fact, physical activity may be more important than ever during this unprecedented and difficult situation. There are lots of ways that children and young people, and their families, can get active at home.
Your child’s school may have provided specific learning at home resources for P.E. but there are also a wide range of activities and resources that families can access, to enable them to be active at home.
We are encouraging all schools, partners and families to share how they are keeping active online by using the hashtag #StayActiveSussex.
