Sport England has teamed up with Youth Sport Trust to develop a new online resource designed to help more children become physically active.

Called Active Recovery Hub, the initiative will provide schools, local authorities and families access to free resources, designed to encourage children to reach the Chief Medical Officer's target of taking part in 60 minutes of physical activity a day.

The new platform allows schools and parents to search for activities by age and the time of day they want to get active.

Ali Oliver, chief executive of the Youth Sport Trust, said the platform will make it easy for schools to access age-appropriate content so children can be helped to be active, recover their wellbeing after the pandemic and re-engage in school.

“Teachers have told us they recognise the importance of physical activity and the outdoors in children’s recovery, but they have so much on their plate at the moment, we want to make it simple for them,” Oliver said.

“The hub will support schools to find easy-to-use and engaging content all in one place, removing some of the barriers currently faced.

“With National School Sport Week just around the corner in June, the Active Recovery Hub and joined-up approach from the school sport and physical activity sector will be vital in supporting children to have fun and celebrate the life-changing benefits of play and sport.”

Active Recovery Hub follows the launch of the government’s School Sport and Activity Action Plan, which promised to help teachers and parents find opportunities for young people to compete and get active.

The new hub sits on the existing School Games website. To visit the new hub, click here.
