Pennine Schools Sports Partnership
Schools Sport Partnerships deliver sport for and with all secondary, junior, primary and special schools and the local community within each partnership area.
The Pennine Sports Partnership works to improve sport in school, both within and beyond the curriculum. A particular role is to increase the amount of competitive sport in which young people can participate.
The benefits of young people's participation in sport are:
- Improvements in pupil concentration, commitment and self-esteem, leading to higher attendance and better behaviour and attainment.
- Fitness levels - active children are less likely to be obese and more likely to pursue sporting activities as adults.
- Success in international competition by ensuring talented young sportspeople have a clear pathway to elite sport and competition, whatever their circumstances.
