The Deans Sports Partnership
The Deans Sports Partnership is a joint collaboration of local schools within the Deans area.
The aims of the partnership are to work together in Physical Education and School Sport by:
- Raising the profile of PE and School Sport by improving the quality of teaching and learning through direct support to teachers and Inset opportunities.
- Providing opportunities to increase the range and provision of opportunities to schools to encourage healthy, active lifestyles.
- Providing opportunities for children to take part in competition and enrichment activities.
- Developing opportunities for young people to take part in leadership and volunteering through sports captains and sports leadership programmes.
- Seeking ways to create a sustainable partnership for future years.
- Producing reports and management information to relevant parties such as OFSTED, teachers, governors and community representatives.
Children in year 6 have the opportunity to become ‘sports captains’ and lead various activities and represent the school in different ways. This programme is linked to English in terms of the application form and persuasive writing. Those chosen then help in a number of ways such as assisting with the multiskills clubs for younger children and reporting on events for the school noticeboards/website.
Events and Competitions
For most events, we will play the other schools in the Deans Sports Partnership and the results will contribute to The Deans Sports Partnership Community Cup.
We have been successful in winning the Deans Sports Partnership Cup for the second year running and are looking forward to competing in more events this year.
