At Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport we are committed to and are working in partnership with Leicestershire County Council, Leicester City Council and Rutland County Council Public Health Teams, and our School Sport & Physical Activity Networks (SSPANs) and school staff, to develop and deliver a new 'Whole School Approach'.
This aims to ensure that all of our young people have access to a variety of opportunities in PE, school sport and physical activity and improve their health and wellbeing.
Delivering a high quality physical education, school sport and physical activity offer across Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland
We have a vision for every young person across Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland to receive a consistent and sustainable high quality Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity offer, for the benefit of their health and wellbeing.
We feel we can collectively achieve this by all schools committing to a series of pledges.
This advocacy document highlights some of the fantastic best practice currently taking place in our schools, through a series of local case studies. All schools within this document are happy to be contacted by colleagues to discuss their best practice in more detail or even arrange visits to their schools.
The Leicestershire and Leicester City PE & School Sport Champion Groups have looked across Leicestershire, Leicester City and Rutland to find some of the excellent work in physical activity that is helping young people to thrive in our secondary schools.
We know that high quality physical education and sport makes a contribution to the well-being of young people far beyond the curriculum and this booklet details six case studies from the following Schools that demonstrate this:
Castle Rock High School
King VII Science & Sport College
Robert Smyth Academy
Rushey Mead Academy
Uppingham Community College

School Sport, Health & Wellbeing Apprenticeships
In conjunction with Loughborough College, the programme has seen outstanding success rates and has had a lasting impact on the participating primary, secondary and special schools, many of whom have gone on to employ their apprentices.
Apprentices employed are post 16 years of age and receive outstanding training and development from Loughborough College in order to effectively carry out their role.
"Andy (apprentice) has been a tremendous asset to both schools this year. He has shown excellent organisational skills to develop a range of extra-curricular opportunities. We have found our involvement in the scheme to be of great benefit this year and would welcome being involved again in the future. The fact that Andy was school based for the vast majority of the time meant that we could effectively plan opportunities and arrange activities, which was of benefit to all pupils."
