The impact of school sports partnerships

E-mail Print

All children, whatever their circumstances, should be able to participate in and enjoy PE and school sport. Regular participation, both within and beyond the curriculum, can reduce obesity, improve fitness levels and, by improving concentration and self-esteem, help attendance, behaviour and attainment.

Over £1 billion is being invested by the Government to transform PE and school sport. An ambitious Public Service Agreement target, shared by DfES and DCMS, has been set to increase the percentage of school children who spend at least two hours each week on high-quality PE and school sport within and beyond the curriculum to 75% by 2006.

Editor's comments - [  The Department for Education and Skills commissioned a survey in autumn 2003 into PE and sport in schools belonging to the first 31 School Sport Partnerships (known as Phase 1). 1,341 schools responded, including those involved in their Partnership since its establishment in September 2000 and those that had been members for a matter of weeks.  ]  Reference this?Cryer, J.
