The ARA is attending the annual School and Sport Partnerships’ Conference at the International Centre in Telford.  It is aimed at representatives from the school and colleges that are part of the Physical Education and Sport Strategy for Young People programme (PESSYP).

The conference is supported by government via the Department for Children, Schools and Families and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, through the new PESSYP strategy and is aimed at representatives from School Sport Partnerships, County Sport Partnerships, National Governing Bodies and Local Education Authorities.


Entitled ‘Playing your Part in the Team’, the conference will focus on the incredible team work it takes to provide PE and sport for young people and will be exploring essential team roles through the five themes of Curriculum; Leading, Volunteering and Coaching, School to Community, Competition and Infrastructure.

The themes will be explored through keynotes, mini-keynotes, workshops and networking.  Delegates will also have the opportunity to learn about all the Youth Sport Trust and related ARA programmes and visit an exhibition featuring the latest innovations in PE and Sport.
