Important Safety Measures:
There are some small steps you can take to reduce the chance of problems occurring when you are exercising in and around the home.
- Make sure you have enough space around you before starting an activity
- Prepare the exercise space by clearing away unnecessary clutter
- Make sure the level chosen is appropriate for you/your child’s physical and mental limits
- Make sure all activity is focussed on achieving your/your child’s personal best rather than being compared to others
- Stay hydrated. Have water to hand
We are aware that the current situation is likely to mean that many children will be spending an increased amount of time online over the coming weeks. Online safety is an important part of keeping children safe and as such we would like to share some helpful advice to help you consider how you can keep your family safer online at home.
CSW Virtual School Games Competition FAQs
How does it work?
The CSW Virtual School Games is an opportunity for pupils to engage in competition at home whilst still feeling part of their school team. All Competitions are open to pupils from KS1-KS4.
Schools will receive all the information needed from their School Games Organiser (SGO) via a PDF to be shared with all pupils at their school.
Competitions will launch each Monday at 9:45am on Twitter with entries closing at 1pm on Friday of the same week. Pupils will have a week to practice and complete the challenges and enter the competitions through a Survey Monkey link.
Results will be announced each Friday via the @ThinkActiveCSW Twitter page at 5pm.
How do we/pupils enter?
Pupils direct entry – pupils/parents record the scores and enter via the relevant Survey Monkey link.
School entries – Schools can use the results spreadsheet provided by your SGO to enter multiple pupils (critical worker/ vulnerable children) at once. This must be completed and returned to Tracey Freer before 1pm on the Friday of that competition – firstname.lastname@example.org
Will there be prizes or certificates?
Participants – All participants will receive access to an e-certificate on completion of each challenge.
Individuals – At the end of each week the top 3 individuals from KS1, KS2, KS3 and KS4 will receive a £5.00 AMAZON E-VOUCHER.
Schools – The Infant/junior or Primary School and Secondary schools with the highest percentage of participants by the time each competition ends will receive a £75.00 PE equipment voucher.
How can we use the competitions?
This is great opportunity to give all pupils a taste of competition. We would love to see as many of you promoting the resource in as many ways possible.
Ideas on how to promote the competitions:
- Tweet your support and encouragement on social media
- Set the competitions as homework or physical activity breaks in pupils home learning
- Place in home learning packs
- Share with parents via e-mail
- Share on school’s website
Will we know how many pupils have entered from our school?
Yes, your SGO will have this information and be able to share with you the number of pupils that have taken part.
If you have any further questions or queries in relation to the CSW Virtual School Games please email your SGO directly.
