School Resources and Support
The Primary PE and Sport Premium is a huge investment by the Government into physical activity provision. So, we want to help you make a long-lasting impact with your funding. Here’s a quick round-up of school resources and organisations that can support you to get pupils physically active with a high-quality PE and sport offer.
Association for Physical Education (afPE)
The Association for Physical Education (afPE) is the only PE Subject Association in the UK. It is committed to being the agency of choice for people and organisations delivering or supporting the delivery of PE, school sport and physical activity in educational contexts and in the wider community. afPE’s work includes:
- developing physical education-related policy and related statements
- responding to consultations, providing resources
- outstanding professional learning across the sector
- meeting with representatives from partner organisations and political representatives
- promoting the subject in a variety of forums
Children and Young People Active Lives Survey
The Active Lives Children and Young People Survey provides a world-leading approach to gathering data on how children engage with sport and physical activity. It helps anyone working with children aged 5-16 to help understand children’s attitudes and behaviours around sport and physical activity.
As an Active Partnership, we administer the Children and Young People Active Lives Survey for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. If you would like to volunteer your school to take part, please email our Active Lives Associate, Sarah.
Create offers innovative training, programmes and resources that look to ‘redefine what’s possible’ for PE, Sport and physical activity. Their inclusive approaches create habits and develop essential behaviours, physical literacy, and emotional and thinking skills in EVERY child.
Create’s services include the PE and Sport Premium and Health Wheel, which helps schools measure the impact of their PE and Primary Sport funding. We’ve bought the license for it so Hampshire and Isle of Wight Schools don’t have to. Take a look at the wheel and get in touch with Kelly to begin using it in your school.
