Learning from home support

To support schools while students learn from home, the School Sport Unit has a range of resources to engage students in physical activity. We encourage schools to continue to engage students in physical activity options, not only for curriculum areas like PDHPE and sport, but also for general health and wellbeing, especially at this time.
