We understand how much there is going on within schools at this current time, curriculum teaching and day to day running of a school whilst keeping up with Local and National guidance around Covid:19.  Active Essex in partnership with Essex County Council Education team want to ensure you have up to date information at your fingertips about PE, Physical Activity and School Sport, and back in June 2020, launched the first of our Education Webinars.

Our webinars have been designed in response to feedback and guidance updates, if you have any suggestions for themes or content you would like covered please do not hesitate to let us know.

With the ever-changing landscape in and out of schools, Active Essex would like to support staff in organising and delivering effective, meaningful physical experiences for their young people out of the school setting. Online learning is now a necessary tool in ensuring all pupils are exposed to a balanced and rich learning experience, so what about PE, physical activity and school sport?

How can we adapt our in-school provision to suit the needs of the home-learner?

How can we encourage pupils to maintain physical activity levels across their school day in the home setting?
