The North West Leicestershire School Sports Partnership (NWLSSP) is a successful partnership formed of 36 primary schools, 6 secondary schools and 1 special school committed to delivering high quality PE, school sport and physical activity opportunities for young people by working collaboratively to pool resource and expertise from across North West Leicestershire.  Working closely as a partnership provides significant advantages for schools including:

  • An enhanced PE, school sport and physical activity offer demonstrating a high return on investment to key stakeholders such as Ofsted and parents.
  • Greater economies of scale when it comes to purchasing or procuring services such as coaching or CPD.
  • The opportunity to share and access examples of best practice in PE, school sport and physical activity at a local, regional and national level.
  • Ensuring local inter school competitions are well attended and are provided in sports that meet the needs of the schools and pupils involved.
  • A powerful network of advocates championing the benefits of PE, school sport and physical activity for young people and schools.
  • The opportunity to successfully bid for additional external funding to enhance the PE and School Sport offer across all schools.

Each school ‘buys into’ the NWLSSP at a rate of £5 (Independent/Primary) or £3 (Secondary) per pupil on role each academic year.  Depending on the needs of each school they then also buy into one of three options of additional services provided by the NWLSSP to further enhance the PE, school sport and physical activity offer to their pupils.  The following three options relate to the agreements to be put in place for the beginning of the 2015-16 academic year lasting until the end of the 2019-20 academic year.
