Active Fusion Conference 2020
The Active Fusion Conference 2020 will focus on the power Physical Education has to improve mental and physical well-being.
Doncaster and locations across the UK are fighting against an epidemic of obesity and poor physical and mental health in the young. We want the Active Fusion Conference 2020 to bring together professionals in education to explore how we can inspire a healthier and happier generation together.
Delegates will be joined by a keynote speaker and industry experts, and they will hear from Active Fusion’s director about the work being done to improve physical and mental health in young people. Everyone will be invited to take part in a number of workshops delivered by Active Fusion staff, including practical advice about how to help children and young people become more physically active.
Meet Keynote Speaker Andy Grant
Andy Grant is a former Royal Marine Commando and author of “You’ll Never Walk”. After having his leg amputated following an explosion in Afghanistan, Andy refused to succumb to his injuries and reinvented himself as an athlete and motivational speaker. He has since competed in the Invictus Games, climbed the highest mountain in South America and is the fastest one-legged man over 10K. We can’t wait to hear from his at the Active Fusion Conference 2020.
Timetable and headteachers’ breakfast meeting
You can access the timetable of events here: Conference 2020 Timetable
We’re also delighted to be offering a headteachers’ breakfast meeting. Headteachers are welcome to attend only the breakfast meeting or the whole event.
Starting at 7.45am and ending at 9.15, the breakfast meeting will discuss generating school income; the purpose of sport and health officers and workplace mental health.
We hope the breakfast meeting will offer a solution to headteachers passionate about driving forward Physical Education and activity, whilst not taking too much time which needs to be spent at school.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about the breakfast meeting.
Please see a more detailed timetable of the breakfast meeting here.
School Games Workshop
Adam Fuller (Regional School Games Organiser) will also be running a School Games workshop from 8:15- 9:15 which attendees of the day are welcome to be involved in. Adam will be providing an interactive workshop covering updates from the School Games nationally.

“Fun, informative and friendly – overall, a fantastic event!”
