A positive sporting experience through education is key to building young people's competence and confidence in sport
Our main priority in school sport is to lead and manage the Active Schools Network of Active School managers and coordinators. Our goal is to ensure that there are more and higher quality opportunities to participate in sport within schools and that these opportunities are well connected to and supported by other local, regional and national partners.
We also engage with the physical education (PE) profession to maximise the synergy between PE and school sport and to support and influence the development of more physically literate children and young people.
While our focus is sport, our activities will connect to the wider landscapes of play, dance, exercise and active living – we know that it will take a joint effort to deliver the health and performance related fitness our children and young people deserve.
