To continue to support schools to deliver high quality PE and School sport through a coordinated local delivery system, ensuring via collaborative partnering, that local needs are met and the greatest benefit is felt by all children and young people. We work with primary and secondary schools to enhance the quality of sporting opportunities through the curriculum, Out of School Hours Learning, intra- and inter- school competition and developing the young volunteers of the future.
The Sainsbury's School Games is the Government's initiative for school sport and is their strategic priority to increase the number of young people participating in competition and provide a lasting legacy for the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games. The Schools Games are funded by DCMS, DoH, DfE and Sport England Lottery Funding, with outcomes across School, Health and Sport. Sainsbury's are now the official sponsor for the Games.
Project Ability is a national programme supported with Government funding as part of their School Games initiative. 50 lead schools, one from each county, work with a number of partner schools, School Sport Partnerships and their County Sport Partnership, to increase the opportunities for young people with a disability or learning needs to experience high quality competition.
The Partnership supports schools to develop young people's leadership skills in a number of ways: through the National Young Ambassador Programme, Young Leaders training in primary schools and providing training opportunities for students in secondary schools and Further Education Colleges.
Team Building is an aspect of Outdoor & Adventurous Activities that can support the Social, Moral and Cultural development of pupils on a school site. eg. Taking turns, fair play, praising, respecting and supporting others. We are offering a variety of resources and opportunities to increase pupil’s self-esteem and confidence through Team Building Activities, creating a positive learning environment across the school.
We have included within our site a number or useful links to external organisations, within the county and outside. Use these links to find assistance or find key partners.
For all our PLT's and PE Subject Leaders we provide a full range of downloadable resources, documents, templates, helpful information, to make your work easier!
Our Information section is a great place to find complimentary help to what the Partnership does and supplementary info from other related bodies.
