Active Health & Wellbeing

During our Why Creativity Matters NOW conversations we ask 'how can cultural partnerships support active health and wellbeing?' Join us online, Tuesday 12th October 3:30-4:15pm. 
All of Create Sheffield’s Partners do fantastic, high quality work. Here are a few examples of Sheffield-based companies that work directly with schools in this area:

Greentop Community Circus Centre has 20 years experience of professional circus training, youth circus and tailor made wellbeing programmes and events for schools.

Greentop Community Circus Centre and Beck Primary have co-created ‘This is Circus’ a 6 week Circus programme to take over PE. It has been designed to engage the least active children, promote resilience and grow creativity.  

The programme was tested at Beck with Y3 to Y6 groups during the pandemic designed so it can be run entirely remotely by schools, for a lead teacher to pick it up and run with using loaned equipment detailed lesson plans and bespoke videos. It is now being adapted to provide a blended approach with circus teachers proving CPD and in class support.

Since September over 320 children have been involved at Beck Primary, Hucklow Primary, Brightside Infants and Bradfield and Dungworth Primary, 90% felt able to learn lots of different skills and 84% felt circus helped them take on and succeed at difficult challenges. Read more
