HWSSP Programmes

In order to develop quality sports and PE opportunities across our partnership, both within school and beyond, Hertford and Ware School Sports Partnership works alongside many community partners at local and national level. Below is a list of programmes that we currently deliver, and the schemes we have developed ourselves to promote sport in our partnership

 

School Games

The School Games programme is at the heart of every School Sports Partnership and will give every primary, secondary, independent and special school, and every pupil from years 3-13, the opportunity to get involved. Over £128m of Lottery and Government funding is being invested to support School Games, and it involves over 30 sports. The scheme is committed to increasing opportunities for young people with disabilities to compete on a local, regional and national level and developing inclusive events. The School Games Mark rewards schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community via club links. 
More information about how HWSSP delivers School Games can be found on our School Games Page

Change4Life

One of our biggest partners, Change4Life are passionate about motivating and supporting millions of people to make and sustain changes that will improve their health. Primary sports clubs have been created to increase physical activity levels in less active seven- to nine-year-olds, through multi-sport themes.
The clubs strive to create an exciting and inspirational environment for children to engage in school sport. Over time the clubs will ensure that they take part in lifelong sport and physical activity, reducing the risk of chronic disease in later life.

HWSSP's own programmes

Festivals and Level 2 Competitions

Some children are turned off by competitive sport -At the heart of the School Games is the understanding that competitive sport needs to be made accessible and enjoyable for all young people. By structuring competitive sport at a range of levels to suit the needs of their children, schools should be able to ensure that young people are able to take part in meaningful competitive sport at a level that is right for them. The School Games also presents some excellent opportunities for young people to become sports reporters, leaders, officials and volunteers.
Examples of HWSSP Festivals: Infant Agility. Sportshall.Every1in Event. Multi skills festivals. World Wide Wodson Games.
