5x60 Secondary School Sport Programme
This Sport Wales scheme increases opportunities for extra-curricular sport and physical activity sessions for primary age children. It builds on the Dragon Sport scheme.
The Sports Council report that 99% of Wales's mainstream secondary schools have signed up to the 5x60 scheme.
The programme is managed by local authority 5x60 officers, based in designated schools. They work with local stakeholders to create opportunities that meet the needs and choices of the pupils. Officers involve parents, students, and local coaches and sports club personnel in developing activities.
The 5x60 programme complements existing sport and physical education (PE) provision in schools. It offers a range of activities to all children regardless of ability. A key principle is that the pupils chose the activities themselves. Activities include:
- competitive sport;
- informal activities, such as dance and aerobics;
- coached activities; and
- outdoor activities.
The programme gives young people opportunities to lead activities in their own schools.
The 5x60 programme is a £4.9m Welsh Government funded programme.
For more information on the schools involved and the activities being offered, please visit the websites below.
