Sports at school: Jean-Michel Blanquer and Roxana Maracineanu move to the Toulouse academy

The ministers will first go to the Clairfont primary school, where the “30 minutes of daily exercise” operation has been set up, in particular through a partnership with the municipality. It also benefits from the Génération 2024 label, which aims to encourage young people to practice physical and sports activities in view of the Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Then they will go to Lycée Gallieni, where during their training they will meet the basketball team of the center of sports excellence and consult with the educational team of the establishment. Such a center enables educational arrangements that meet the needs of young people who ultimately want to reach the high level.

At a later date, the ministers will participate in the conference “Meetings and Inspirations”, attended by more than a thousand students, where several top athletes will share their personal stories and highlight their involvement in sport. †

Finally, a Sports and Education Steering Committee will provide an opportunity to discuss key measures to promote sport in schools (see below).

On the occasion of this trip, the ministers will participate in a National Day commemoration time in memory of the victims of terrorism.

Measures in favor of sport at school

“30 minutes of daily physical activity”

The Ministry of National Education, Youth and Sports and Paris 2024 are committed to ensuring that every primary school pupil benefits from at least 30 minutes of daily physical activity (30’APQ) in addition to physical education, with a health objective. The content of these sequences is left to the initiative of the teachers who can organize them with the support of local sports associations. A package of sports accessories is being offered to schools by the Ministry in collaboration with the Paris 2024 Organizing Committee.
The principle of daily physical activity was laid down in the Education Code as part of the Sports Act of 2 March 2022.
The goal is to reach 100% of the schools involved in the scheme by 2024

“Aquatic Convenience”

The Aquatic Ease program started in 2019 to combat drowning and is aimed at children under 6 years of age. Endowed with 15 million euros, it complements the traditional learning cycles of school swimming. Thus, from kindergarten it helps to familiarize children with the aquatic environment, to acquire the basics to develop in the water, and guarantees better efficiency in learning to swim. As a reminder, the Sports Act of March 2, 2022 included water convenience in school programs.
The goal is to issue 100,000 aquatic convenience certificates by 2022.

“Know how to ride a bike”

The use of Know How to Ride a Bike is of fundamental importance to educate the bicycle users of tomorrow. From primary school, children are invited to take a one to two week training course which consists of three phases: learning to pedal, driving around and finally driving on public roads.
The goal is to circulate them independently and in complete safety as they enter high school. This training is also an opportunity to make students aware of the challenges of sustainable development and soft mobility.
The goal is to achieve 200,000 Know How to Ride a Bike certificates by 2022.

“Generation 2024”

The Generation 2024 label aims to engage schools and educational institutions in the dynamics of the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The label has four objectives:

  • Develop structuring projects with the area’s sports clubs;
  • Participate in Olympic and Paralympic promotional events;
  • Guiding or welcoming top athletes;
  • Open the sports facilities of the establishments.

5,049 schools and educational institutions (2,928 schools, 1,515 colleges and 606 high schools) have already achieved the Generation 2024 label with more than 1,860,000 students.

“1 school, 1 club”

In order to strengthen the commitment of the 30’APQ and collaborations with local sports associations in primary education, the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports has launched the “1 school, 1 club” operation. These partnerships between schools and regional sports associations make it possible to broaden the diversity of sports activities offered to students, but also to bring a new audience to the clubs.
They are the concrete expression of the agreements signed by the Ministry at national level with 41 sports federations that complete the network of school sports federations (USEP and UNSS).
