Following the Comprehensive Spending Review in October 2010, funding for the School Sport Partnerships (SSPs) was stopped in England with effect from August 2011. The impact of this in Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland meant that the funding for the 10 School Sport Partnerships covering every primary, secondary, high and special school in the sub-region was ceased.
Following much lobbying and hard work 100% of School Sport Partnerships have been maintained now known as School Sport & Physical Activity Networks (SSPAN), with one new Special School SSPAN formed across Leicestershire and Leicester ensuring that a comprehensive school sport and physical activity offer for the children and young people exists.
Although there are many differences in each of the emergency SSPANs there has been dialogue and discussion with Headteachers and other staff to ensure that essential and important work areas are covered in relation to ensuring a degree of consistency. These areas include - Leadership and Volunteering, Inclusive, Competition through the School Games, School to School and School to Community Links and where possible a shared process of efficient and effective data collection.
