As a result of the Comprehensive Spending Review in October 2010 the government announced an end to central funding for SSPs. However, after some very strong public opinion a re-think was announced and in February 2011 the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and the Deparment of Health (DoH) announced £24 million of funding to pay for 450 new roles, to work two or three days a week, as School Games Organisers.

With something to build on, a local delivery system has since been maintained in Uttlesford with schools committing to work collaboratively with each other, and making a financial contribution to sustain the management services of the SSP. This means Jackie Coleman will start to manage and run the Partnership, alongside fulfilling the role of School Games Organiser.

In addition the Department for Education has committed funding for the period September 2011 to August 2013 to enable every secondary school to release a PE teacher for one day a week. These teachers/ School Sport Competition Organisers (SSCOs) will provide specialist PE and sport support to local primary schools and provide more competitive sport for all pupils, including the School Games.

As a School Sports Partnership our intention is:
To continue to support schools to deliver High Quality PE and school sport through a coordinated local delivery system, ensuring through collaborative partnering, local needs are met and the greatest benefit is felt by all young people.

The guiding principles that will shape our work are to:

  • Provide      a broad and varied range of opportunities for all young people to take      part in physical activity, sport and leadership and volunteering
  • Support      young people to develop healthy and active lifestyles which they can      follow through into adult life
  • Maximise      the impact that PE and sport can have in increasing the achievement and      attainment of young people
  • Work      with partners to provide Continued Professional Development to up skill      the workforce delivering PE and sport to young people
  • Work      with community clubs and partners to maximise opportunities for all young      people and support their transition into community sport
  • Use      the magic and inspiration of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games      to inspire and motivate young people’s learning across the curriculum and      raise participation in physical activity
