Nominate now for the Active School Hero Awards

Wednesday 19th May 2021

Do you know someone that goes above and beyond to provide children with physical activity opportunities? Someone that encourages staff and students to be active? An inspiring, energetic and motivated individual that deserves some recognition? Nominate them as an Active School Hero today!

We know today’s young generation is the least active in history, only one in five kids in the UK gets the recommended level of physical activity each day.

However, we also know active kids are healthier, happier and more successful. They perform better in their classrooms, communities and future careers.


Young people exercising


School staff make the difference. They not only teach, they motivate, empower and inspire kids to move in the right direction and achieve great things. We want to shine a spotlight on the amazing work these heroes do and share their stories to inspire others.

That’s why ukactive Kids and Nike Global Community Impact have created Active School Hero to celebrate the achievements of the heroes working tirelessly in primary schools across England to inspire Generation Active.
