School Physical Activity

As we continue to adapt to our current situation and plan for how best to support our learners and families in the coming months, schools are reminded of the support that we can provide through real PE at home with our partner Create Development.

If your school has a full real PE membership package it now comes with instant access to home logins for all your families. Please find below samples of the activities and challenges available:

If you are interested in setting up real PE at home for your families please contact Margaret Stevens on mstevens@oxford.gov.uk for more information and pricing.


We offer a range of services for schools designed to increase participation in school sport and physical activity by helping schools develop a wide range of sporting opportunities. General support is available to all city schools whether primary, secondary or special.

Some of the services we offer include:

Staff training using the industry leading Create Development staff training solutions, resources and Jasmine the digital learning platform. We have two Create Development approved tutors in the team who can provide training across Oxfordshire.
