Sport Sanctuaries – does your school have one? 

In this innovative Think Piece, Victoria Wells from the Youth Sports Trust, asks the central question  Could ‘sport sanctuaries’ in schools help young people recover from the impact of a pandemic?
Her ideas are strongly allied to the 5 levers in the Recovery Curriculum , especially meta-cognition and space.
In the week when Ofsted published evidence (10th November), on the ‘mental distress’ and erosion of mental health in our Children and Young People , we have to find ways that enable the CYP themselves to self regulate their mood and re build their resilience. Exercise, for all of its well known benefits, offers this at all levels for all learners.
We highly recommend this piece to you, and look forward to seeing examples of good practice emerging from this thought provoking piece.
