As a school we have been invited to participate in the School Games Active Championships via the TopYa! Active app.
The School Games Active Championships is a national activity campaign to help young people across the UK to stay active and compete using a video based platform.
Primary and Secondary age children can join the championships at any time, with free active challenges being set via videos within a designated School Games version of the TopYa! Active app.
To get involved:
The TopYa! Active app is committed to online safety and meets rigorous COPPA and GDPR safeguarding standards. No one can communicate within the app. All children can do is give each other a virtual high five which functions like a ‘social media like’.
Video content is suitable for young people of all ages and abilities with regular submissions from National Governing Bodies of Sport.
This is a Havering wide competition. It would be great to get as many children as possible competing for our school and gives us a way of bringing all children together whether they are at home or in school.
There are now instructions on how to set privacy controls within the app. Some parents my not want their child to be featured on our website so they can turn off the shared function. The video will go to the TopYa coaches to have points awarded, but will not be shown on any public areas. Can you please make sure that parents are aware of this.
The Active School Games Championships will continue until the end of August. Instructions on how to get started with TopYa as a parent and a school can be found on our website, along with all the unique school codes: https://haveringsportscollective.org/covid-19/schools/
