If you’re new to 5-a-day TV you might have lots of questions. Don’t panic, we’ve put together a list of the most commonly asked.
How do I renew?
Your subscription will automatically renew after 12 months, unless you give written notice of cancellation within 30 day of that date. Simply pass on the invoice to your accounts department for payment, avoiding any break in service.
Can my pupils access 5-a-day from home?
Yes. For an extra £4.58 per month (per school) your pupils can access from home a selection of videos from your school’s 5-a-day TV account.
Is technical support available?
Is 5-a-day TV available offline?
Unfortunately not; all 5-a-day routines stream directly from the internet. We recommend a network speed of 10mbps or more. However it will run successfully on slower systems.
Do teachers have to join in?
It’s not compulsory, but we’re sure they’ll enjoy 5-a-day as much as the pupils. It’s so easy, anyone can join in!
Do teachers need any special training?
No. All our routines are fully demonstrated on screen by our trained instructors. All teachers need to do is log in, click play, and join in the fun!
Can I speak to a school that already has 5-a-day?
Yes. If you would like speak to other schools or teachers about the effect that 5-a-day has had on their school, please Contact Us and we’ll put you in touch with a school in your area that is already enjoying 5-a-day.
Do I need to take my class into the hall to do 5-a-day?
5-a-day is designed specifically for classroom use. All the routines can be performed behind the pupil’s desks, and there is no need to change into a PE kit. However if you have white-board/projection facilities in your school hall you could start the day with a 5-a-day session for the whole school!
What age and ability is 5-a-day suitable for?
5-a-day is for primary/elementary (K-6) schools. It can be used across Key stages 1 and 2. The routines are graded for difficulty, but can all be used by all abilities. 5-a-day has also been used with great success in SEN schools.
