In response to the recent global pandemic incidents involving the Coronavirus, known as Covid-19 and in order to control this pandemic, there have been a number of restrictions made by the government including isolation and social distancing. Coping during a pandemic is expected to affect the mental and physical health of children and young people. It is therefore important that children and families stay active – as long as they feel well enough to do so. Even small amounts of activity will have a positive impact on their mental and physical health. The Active 30 team have developed a bank of home/school based physical activity resources which schools, families and parents can access during this time, via the links below. The resources will be updated daily and will also be shared on our Facebook and Twitter pages, so please feel free to follow us to access these.
Resources to stay active can be found at https://www.countydurhamsport.com/stay-active-at-home/
You can also keep up to date with new information by following us on Social media:
The Active 30 Durham Campaign aims to help schools in County Durham to support every pupil to participate in 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity activity everyday at school – as recommended by the Chief Medical Officer (CMO).
As a county, we want our children to have the best start in life and physical activity plays a key part in physical, mental and emotional wellbeing and academic learning! The Active 30 Durham Hub provides schools with a centralised bank of resources which will include national and local resources, useful videos, documents, research and case studies to help schools make their school day active for every child. The Hub will be updated with new resources and case studies.

The resources in this hub have been collated by a range of Active Durham organisations. The programmes and resources are available nationally and locally. The hub has been created to have the resources in one place for schools in Durham. Schools should carry out their own quality assurance and safeguarding checks of any organisations within the hub that they choose to work with. Active 30 does not warrant that the resources within this Hub are free from any errors, inaccuracies or omissions. It should be noted that the links to external websites have been reviewed and evaluated by Active 30 committee BUT that they are not provided or maintained by Active Durham/30.
