Our work

We pride ourselves on being thought leaders; sharing best practice to mobilise others and campaigning to increase awareness about the power of high quality PE and school sport.

We work with government, decision and policy makers nationally and locally to ensure the best possible delivery of PE and school sport. We also work with partners across all sectors to bring together an effective strategy that embeds PE and school sport into the whole school curriculum, from early years and primary, across transition and through secondary school, to ensure all young people, no matter what their ability level, have access to quality physical activity.

These aims are delivered by providing a wide range of resources and learning initiatives to maximise children and young people’s physical and mental wellbeing, to build their leadership and life skills and to help them achieve beyond the classroom.
