Primary and secondary schools right across London come together every year at the School Games. They face off in four kinds of competition: intra-school, local inter-school, county finals and the School Games National Finals.
Every year, 33 London boroughs set their sights on the Jubilee Trophy, the ultimate prize in our Open Games. Your borough’s top scores in every competition all get added together. Whoever has the most points is declared the winner.
A fun ‘compete against yourself’ approach to physical activity with a focus on resilience and perseverance and the aim to achieve bronze, silver or gold medal targets. A range of activity cards and videos available on their website.

PE activities can be done individually or in pairs/small groups with a focus on the development of physical competence and actively learning the importance of personal skills to support social, emotional and mental wellbeing.
Created in partnership with Complete PE, there are activity cards available across all PE curriculum areas on the Youth Sport Trust website, with each card brought to life with a short video clip. You can download and share the activity cards and can access the paired video by clicking on the YouTube link next to the activity.

Save the air, walk there!
Use the map below to plan your walking journey to and from school.
We want to encourage all our children to walk to school as there are many benefits. Here are a few:
It's advised that children need at least one hour of physical activity each day. Walking to school is a great way of exercising.
Plan your journey to school through traffic-free roads and quieter routes to avoid high levels of pollution.
Studies show that children can burn off excess energy by walking to school thereby allowing them to settle in class and focus on learning.
'Good habits learned young are learned well' https://walkit.com/walking-to-school/
Teach children how to walk safely to school so they can continue to do this as they get older.
A walking bus or walking to school with friends when older, can help children build friendships. As a parent, walking to and from school with your child is a great way of having time in the day to bond - relaxing and talking.
