Cornwall Virtual Winter School Games 2020

After the success of the first ever Virtual School Games in the summer, Active Cornwall and your School Games Organisers are excited to bring you the Cornwall Virtual Winter School Games!

The Cornwall Virtual Winter School Games will take place from 9th until 13th November with virtual challenges running throughout the week including a 'Create Your Own' challenge as well as the return of 'Making up the Miles', where children and young people can walk, run, bike, scoot or wheel to accumulate as many miles across the week for their year group as possible.

This is a great opportunity for pupils to represent their school and achieve points for their year groups. Schools can integrate the challenges into their planning and make it a focus for the week to emphasise the importance of being active.

You can register for this event now as a school and receive all the information along with scoring sheets and an opportunity to attend a webinar with more information on the Games.

The safety of all children taking part in the Cornwall 2020/21 Virtual Winter School Games is paramount for the team behind the games and with this in mind please find above the 'Welfare Plan' produced for the 2020/21 Winter Virtual School Games which includes codes of conducts, use of social media and guidance on sharing photographs as well as what to do if you have cause for concern.

If you have any questions about the welfare of children during the Cornwall 2020/21 Virtual  Winter School Games please contact the Welfare Lead at Active Cornwall Tim Marrion on or call 07973 497454.
