We have created a pack for you to share some more information about your upcoming Sports for Schools visit with the parents. We find that schools that share more information with the parents & carers at their schools do significantly better with their fundraising so we decided to make it really easy for you and give you everything you need, every step of the way!

Using your usual parent communication channels and social media, copy and paste the suggested wording we have written below along with the social media posts provided.

Step 1: Download your parent communications pack here

3 weeks before your event, copy and paste the following text to your parent mailing system – make sure you include the name of your athlete!

Copy and paste this text:

We are thrilled to be able to share some more information about our upcoming Sports for Schools event. We are excited to announce that the athlete who will be visiting us will be [insert athlete name here]!

On the event day, all pupils will take part in a sponsored fitness circuit run by their athlete, a terrific way to get all children excited about sport and realise that getting moving is really fun! Their athlete will then share their incredible sporting journey, a story of resilience and determination in a fun and interactive assembly. There will also be an opportunity to ask any burning questions in a Q&A session with their inspiring role-model at the end!

Fundraising for the event will begin next week when the children will be bringing home a sponsorship form. The money raised for the event will go towards new important resources to improve levels of physical activity in our school, such as new sports equipment!
