PE & School Sport

We support the 251 Primary Schools, 21 Junior Schools and 37 Secondary Schools in Cumbria with theirĀ PE & School Sport helping to tackle the rising levels of obesity in Cumbria through whole school approaches.

We are committed to providing opportunities for young people to get involved in sport and physical activity, not only as participants but also as coaches, leaders and volunteers.

Active Cumbria believes that sport and physical activity can have a huge positive impact on the lives of Children & Young People.

How we can support

We are funded by Sport England to provide schools with objective and impartial advice and guidance. Other ways in which we can help include:

  • Planning and supporting the delivery of training for school staff to increase the quantity and improve the quality of PE and sporting activities
  • Providing advice and guidance on the use of external, appropriately qualified coaches/volunteers in line with recognised standards and good practice
  • Helping schools to participate in the School Games and other relevant programmes
  • Providing links to local partners including community sports clubs.

Are you seeking advice or guidance around any aspect of PE or deployment of the Primary School Sport Premium in your school?
