SSPAN membership overview
Leicester City School Sport and Physical Activity Network is made up of 111 schools across the City split into East and West Leicester. The network has been supporting Leicester City infant, primary, secondary, special and independent schools along with our further education colleges to enhance PE and school sport opportunities for ALL young people.
Historically we have offered far more to schools through the now terminated School Sport Partnership infrastructure which, until 2010 brought approximately £500k of Government funding to enhance PE and School Sport to the City each academic year. These funds are now reallocated directly to primary schools via the PE and Sport Premium. Using the remnants of the SSP funding we have continued to provide a wider offer to City schools, and maintained much of the network. The funding has unfortnately come to and end.
Our close working relationship and continued support of the City schools with a wider offer than the National minimum has shown us that there is still a desire for an experienced, pro - active network to support schools with their co-ordinations of sustainable delivery of High Quality PE, School Sport and Physical Activity for ALL young people.
From 2015 we have offered Primary school membership packages. From consultation with our primary colleagues this year, we have revised and simplified our packages for 2016-2018 to provide you with a quality service meeting the needs of Ofsted and the Department of Education.
We now have an SSPAN membership offer to meet needs of individual INFANT, JUNIOR and PRIMARY schools.
