Primary School Active Clubs
Our Active Clubs provide an exciting range of morning, lunch time and after-school opportunities to children of all ages. We use a mixture of non-traditional and non-sporty activities to engage with pupils who need something different from what’s already offered, face barriers to inclusion in sport specific clubs, or who want to try something new.
SSG Active Clubs are designed to ensure they focus on getting those who are not usually sporty active through inclusive activities. We achieve this with our friendly and accepting style of leadership and by ensuring everything is rewarding and fun for everyone involved.

UNDERSTANDING THE PRIMARY SCHOOLS LANDSCAPE
The introduction of the 2019 Education Inspection Framework means schools are being asked to place a greater emphasis on a knowledge-rich curriculum. Pupils must be challenged and stretched within the schools’ curricula and each school must also be aware of the health (physical & mental) and well-being of each child.
