Tyne & Wear Sport believes that sport and physical activity can have a huge positive impact on the lives of Children & Young People.
We work together with School Games Organisers, schools, Local Authorities and other key partners to help co-ordinate and deliver sport for young people, providing opportunities such as – competition through the School Games, providing advice and guidance to primary schools around their Sports Premium funding and school to community links.
In this section you will find links to useful information and documents produced for education providers. This includes information on:
The School Games is an exciting, multi level competition for school children in England, designed to build on the magic of 2012 to enable every school and child to participate in competitive sport including meaningful opportunities for disabled youngsters.
The Government, through the Department for Education, are investing more than £150m per year to primary schools to improve PE and school sport
Higher Education And Further Education
Higher and Further Education institutions are an ideal way of targeting the 16+ age range and encouraging them to become involved in sport.
School Facilities and Planning
Use Our School is a resource produced by Sport England to support schools in opening their facilities to the community and keeping them open.
There are a number of trusts, charities and organisations across Tyne & Wear and nationally who provide grants to educational establishments.
Active Lives: Children and Young People (CYP) Survey
We are supporting Sport England and their research partner Ipsos MORI to gather information about the amount and type of sport and physical activity undertaken by children and young people aged 5 – 16 years across Tyne & Wear. This work is an extension of the Active Lives Survey which initially gathered information from those aged 16 +.
