Over 30 Amber Valley schools were in attendance at the inaugural Derbyshire Active Schools conference hosted at Derby Arena and iPro Stadium through link work with AVSSP

Staff were able to share ideas and best practice with teachers and professionals from around the county as well as listening to inspiring key note’s from Ali Oliver of the Youth Sport Trust and Martin Burder of the Art of Brilliance.

The conference saw close to 250 schools from across Derbyshire represented with the morning seeing staff able to pick each other brains and get an idea of the national and regional picture in PE and school sport as well as seeing incredible case studies from across the Youth Sport Trust networks not to mention a mascot lead warm up with our very own Ozzy the Octopus!

The afternoon session consisted of a series of practical workshops in game and session ideas, active storytelling and dance, yoga and fitness

Amber Valley schools were also treated to delivery of their FREE set of lesson plans as part of their affiliation package. A full year of curriculum lead planning for each year group in school – the perfect thing to accompany the buffet lunch!

Thank you to all Amber Valley staff who were able to attend, we hope you had an inspiring day!
