Activity hub to help children achieve 60 minutes a day is launched

A new Active Recovery Hub has launched to provide schools, local authorities, and families with easy access to free resources to get children moving before, during and after the school day.

The Youth Sport Trust and Sport England have led the creation of the Active Recovery Hub with the support of funding from the National Lottery.

This follows a commitment in the Government's School Sport and Activity Action Plan to extend the School Games website to help teachers and parents find opportunities for young people to compete and get active.

The hub has hundreds of resources available on it to help all children achieve the Chief Medical Officer's recommendation of an average of 60 active minutes a day. Examples of what it includes are:

  • A Tokyo Ten virtual active breaktime, 10 minutes of activity to get moving by Travel to Tokyo
  • Mini-games resources, designed by charity Sense to help disabled people to be more active
  • A virtual 30-minute YST After School Sport Club
