Physical Activity

AVSSP are proud to be able to offer several bespoke Physical Activity opportunities to schools in Amber Valley. These opportunities are a fantastic way of supplementing a PE curriculum and can be delivered at the majority of primary school sites.

Tough Runner

Launched in 2018 the AVSSP Tough Runner is a mobile assault course which can engage your whole school in an exciting, inclusive health and fitness experience. As well as being physically challenging the activity will develop students’ resilience, self-belief and integrity as they are encouraged to overcome each different physical challenge as they combat the Tough Runner.

The activity course will be set up on your school site and lead by SSP staff with students facing challenges such as climbing walls, cargo netting, tyre runs, balance beams and barbed wire before earning their reward of trying out our 13ft inflatable slip and slide!
