Increased Participation In Competitive Sport


School Games

One strand of school games delivery is competitive school sport. This follows a pathway from area level competition (Level 2) through to county finals (Level 3) and occasional further onto National Competition. These competitions involved the best schools and athletes from across North Yorkshire with the opportunity of a parallel competition in some sports for small schools.

These competitions will provide opportunities for young SEND pupils to take part alongside there peers and representing their school team.


National Governing Bodies (NGBs)

National Governing Bodies of Sport (NGBs) are keen to work with and support Primary schools to make the most of the School Sport Premium and support the delivery of the School Games. NGBs will support any schools in maximising the investment or accessing services to help them improve the quality and quantity of physical education and school sport.

For information in relation to a specific sport please visit the NGB's website.


Coaches in Schools

Coaches are different from teachers (however it is recognised that some teachers will have expertise in some sports) in that they have detailed knowledge, understanding, qualifications and experience in specific sports. When coaches complement teachers (where they feel they need support), outstanding outcomes can be achieved by using their technical knowledge and skills.
