#ThisIsPE campaign

Yorkshire Sport Foundation and leading national organisations are working with Physical Educators from across the country to support parents to teach PE at home.

#ThisIsPE is one of the resources recommended by the Department for Education to support teachers and parents to deliver physical education during the coronavirus lockdown.

During the first six weeks of lockdown, new lessons were added at 1pm on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday and shared on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

If you’d like to share the campaign with others, we’ve created a toolkit to help make life easier.

Two-minute videos show parents and teachers free, fun and easy to follow PE activities for the whole family to enjoy together. 

Each video will focus on a different aspect of the National Curriculum. Our series of short online videos, delivered by PE teachers, will help to continue your child’s skill development in PE. 

Videos will be posted at 1pm on a Monday, Wednesday and a Friday.  You don’t need to be in PE kit and you don’t need sports equipment. All our videos will use things that you can find around the home.

Make sure you’re following us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter so you don’t miss a video.  So you can view all the videos in one place, we’ve created a #ThisIsPE YouTube playlist.

Secondary schools

#ThisIsPE secondary is designed to support teachers and parents/carers with secondary aged children in signposting to appropriate physical education content which will enable pupils to continue their development within national curriculum PE at home during the school closures.

The resources are provided by Youth Sport Trust, one of the campaign partners.

Safety at playOther #ThisIsPE video lessons can easily be made ‘safe’ in schools by following the guidance our partners at AfPE have published to support the Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity (education based) workforce.
