Active Schools

Physically active children are happier, healthier and achieve more. Tees Valley Sport, working with local partners and school leaders aim to help children and their communities become active by adopting a whole school approach. School staff are challenged to undertake physical activity and to openly celebrate the sport and physical activity that they already do. This influences young people and normalises physical activity as part of everyday life. It has also helped expand the relationship that young people have with the adults at their school.

Creating Active School Framework

Our new pilot project commencing January 2022

Creating Active Schools Framework was developed by an independent group of experts to promote a whole systems approach to school improvement. It can be used in all schools and is flexible to adapt to cohort or circumstances. All stakeholders, from local authorities to school leaders and pupils should play a role in embedding physical activity in the school’s ethos. This framework aims to show there are roles for everyone.
