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.
