More than a hundred head teachers and other education professionals are attending the Youth Sport Trust's 'From Outstanding to World Class' Conference at the Kia Oval today.
The free conference is exploring how schools can use academy freedoms to maximise school performance through Physical Education and sport. Organised by the Youth Sport Trust, it is designed for schools who have converted, or who are in the process of converting, to an academy.
The Youth Sport Trust is a national charity, focused on building a brighter future for young people through Physical Education (PE) and sport, and has worked with many schools through the process of becoming an academy.
This period of transition is often a time when schools look for ways to inject additional pace into improvement initiatives or are searching for a different focus to bring about further transformation.
The event is being supported by a range of excellent practitioners, education professionals and athletes, all who understand how the power of PE and sport can be used to improve outcomes for young people.
