The Legacy Challenge is a resource which has been designed by Inspire+ for schools to encourage more young people to be physically active and lead a healthier lifestyle whilst supporting whole school development areas by:

  • Encouraging pupils to become healthier and more active both at school, home and within the
    community
  • Increasing numbers of students participating in intra and inter-school competition
  • Developing leadership skills amongst young people
  • Baseline data that is collected as part of the Legacy Challenge can be used to promote evidence of
    impact for Ofsted (spiritual, moral, social, cultural development), Sport Premium, Healthy Schools
    Status and School Games Mark.

This year’s Legacy Challenge has been set by our Legacy Challenge Ambassadors which includes
Olympic Gold Medallist Shona McCallin MBE and The 401 Challenge runner Ben Smith! Each
Ambassador has set their very own challenge for your pupils to complete, which ranges from exploring
the outdoors to being active during playtime and eating the correct foods.

If you would like for your school to be a part of the Legacy Challenge or to find out further information on
