School Games Active Championship – TopYa App #StayInWorkOut

Dear Parents,

We hope you are all safe and well,

During these times, we know it has been difficult to keep active. We are delighted that we have been invited to take part in a new initiative using the app TopYa. This is an app where children can take part in physical activity challenges and upload their videos to compete in our very own St George’s Academy leaderboard.

The children will just be able to see other children from their own school and teachers within our school will also be able to view the leaderboard, alongside a county Tees Valley leaderboard and a national leaderboard.

It would be fantastic to get as many children involved in this as we can and help the children stay active while at home. Please see below for how to create an account. It is important when creating an account that you enter the unique code below to link up with our school.

 

#STAYINWORKOUT

The School Games Active Championships is a national activity campaign to help young people across the UK to #StayInWorkOut using the video-based platform powered by TopYa! New challenges will be available every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to engage with.

 

Creating an Account

Create your own account, and then create your young person’s account(s). Skip the invite process and simply tell them their username or let them use your device to submit challenges. (They need your permission to use the app if they are younger than 13). All activity on the app is COPPA and GDPR compliant, providing a safe online space for children to complete skill challenges, upload videos and get thoughtful virtual coaching feedback.

Follow these steps: 

  1. Download the TopYa! Active app from the App Store or Google Play
  2. Create your Parent account
  3. When prompted to enter an Invite Code enter 29814 and this will link you up with St George’s Academy where you can view our very own school leaderboard.
  4. Then create your kid(s) account(s)
  5. Let them work on the activities on their own device or film and upload videos from your device on their behalf!

Please be assured 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 to communicate with one another 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.

Many Thanks
