School Sport in Surrey

Active Surrey and partners are committed to supporting schools to increase the number of children and young people participating in high quality PE, sport and physical activity.

Active Surrey employs the School Games team and work in partnership with Babcock 4S, Surrey Outdoor Learning Development, National Governing Bodies of Sport, Local Authorities and other national partners (such as Youth Sport Trust, Sport England) to help co-ordinate, support and deliver PE and sport for schools and young people.

The Government’s new sport strategy ‘Sporting Future - A New Strategy for an Active Nation’ has been published. What does this mean for children and young people?

‘’Opportunity for children to take part in and develop a love of sport and physical activity is vital to ensuring their long-term enjoyment and participation.
Provision for children and young people will rightly sit at the heart of a new strategy for sport in this country. We want to see healthy, happy, active children become healthy, happy, active adults and the talented primary school children of today becoming our sporting stars of the future.’’
Edward Timpson MP
Minister for Children and Families
Department for Education
