Sport in Schools

Schools play a vital role in getting young people active and putting in place the building blocks for a lifelong enjoyment of sport.

Through curricular and extra-curricular sport, there should be opportunities throughout the school day for participation.

Sport Wales has developed resources to support teachers and school staff in the primary phase and for extra-curricular sport in primary schools.
