As we enter another lockdown, it’s more important now than ever to ensure that children are receiving the recommended amount of exercise. During the last lockdown, it was reported that the number of children who said they were doing the recommended 60 minutes of activity a day had dropped from 47% to 29%.
Pupils have missed out on the opportunity to take part in PE lessons and school sports events which is why we have redesigned the Norfolk School Games offer to still enable children to take part and keep the spirit of the Games alive.
Each of the school games competitions has been designed to focus on rewarding whole classes for working together to achieve their best overall score. There are a range of challenges for both primary and secondary schools and schools can choose which competition to take part in. There is a resource card available to explain each competition as well as a video demonstration. You can access the competitions here
Results will be shared on the Norfolk School Games website.
How to enter
