The Active Essex KS1 awards were created as there was previously no vehicle to recognise excellence in delivery of physical activity, P.E and school sport in KS1. Physical literacy is extremely important in getting children active and provides children with the motivation, confidence and understanding to value physical activity.
The aim is to encourage children to engage with physical activity for life as becoming an active adult can ensure they are happier with higher levels of individual and community development.
Active Essex continue to deliver Making the Most of Primary PE and Sport Premium workshops and webinars to aid schools and teachers maximise their sport, P.E and daily movement offer.
Applications were verified by Active Essex and Chelmsford Schools Sport Partnership, schools could apply at any time of the year and the award is valid for 2 years. The awards were given out at an event at Melbourne Stadium in March and the selected schools received a framed certificate from a local councillor as well as having the chance to play different games with other schools.
