Autumn 2020

A new term begins...

After school sports club.

The Youth Sport Trust have taken the step to deliver a free virtual after school club as part of a national response to the second lockdown.

The 30-minute club will take place at 5pm each weekday and be led by a different member of the YST’s athlete mentor network, starting on Thursday 12 November with world no.1 female inline skater and 10-time British Champion Jenna Downing. The After School Sport Club will then run for five weeks until December 18 and children and young people can take part live by visiting our YouTube channel -

Aimed mainly at primary-aged children, a different theme has been assigned for each day of the club - Adventure Monday, Tuesday Play, Wild Wednesday, Thinking Thursday and Fun Friday. The YST hope that this will provide support, capacity and inspiration to sit alongside the other great work and offers that are available for schools and children and young people to engage in.

Stand Up Derbyshire Day

Get Cycling!

Bike to School Week is a week-long event taking place on the 28 September – 2 October 2020.

Participating schools celebrate all the fantastic things they can do to encourage cycling.

We would like to encourage families to cycle after school or at weekends.

Cycling  has many benefits including:

1. People are more relaxed, alert and ready to start the day
2. Children become more aware of road safety and feel more independent
3. It is a boost to physical and mental health and wellbeing.

Use this link to check bikes are ready for riding:
