The PESSCL Strategy (Physical Education School Sport and Club Links) Introduced in 2003 with a target to: ‘increase the percentage of school children who spend a minimum of 2 hours a week on high quality PE and school sport within and beyond the curriculum to 75% by 2006 and 85% by 2008’.
PESSCL Immediate aim was to ensure that by 2010 ALL children aged 5-16 would be offered at least 4 hours of sport every week. This would be made up from: At least 2 hours of high quality PE delivered within the curriculum. An additional 2 hours or more beyond the school day, delivered by a range of school, community and club providers.
PESSCL There are 8 work strands identified to ensure the strategy succeeds. Specialist Sports Colleges – currently 402 of these. These are schools that receive extra funding to make a specialist provision for sport. School Sport Partnerships – clusters of schools around sports colleges – currently 450 of these employ SSCo’s (School Sports Coordinators) Our SSCo in Crestwood is Mr Newbold. Professional Development – training for teachers and other adults. Step into Sport – to encourage involvement in sports leadership and volunteering.
PESSCL School/club links – between PE departments and local community Gifted and talented – to develop the most talented sportspeople even further Swimming – to raise the profile of swimming as an activity and water safety. A target was made for all primary school pupil would be able to swim at least 25 metres. PE and Sport Investigation – working with all of the schools and partnerships throughout the country.
The PESSYP Strategy (PE and Sport Strategy for Young People) Launched by the government in January 2008 Intended to be transition from PESSCL strategy with new work strands but retaining the same objectives. Investment of £755 million over 3 years to deliver this. Will involve up to 5 additional government departments and organisations. Main difference is the PESSYP is aimed at 5-19 yr olds as opposed to the PESSCL which was aimed at 5-16 yr olds. Main theme – ‘5 hour Offer’ – 2 hrs of PE in curriculum time and a further 3 hours of extra-curricular.
PESSYP There are 10 work strands in this strategy: Club links – working with National Governing Bodies of sport to create high quality sports club opportunities. –NGB’s – organisations that run a particular sport across the country. Coaching – linked to campaign to recruit more coaches with a target of 10,000 adult volunteers by 2011 Competition – formation of the National Schools Sport Week, including festivals of sport, intra school and inter school competitions. Disability – Establishment of Multi-Sport Disability Clubs Extending activities – beyond traditional sports, e.g. archery, cheerleading, skateboarding etc.
PESSYP Gifted and Talented – support for exceptional young athletes to progress their skills in their chosen activity. Infrastructure – SSP’s (School Sport Partnerships) are at the centre of the strategy, to help deliver the 2 hrs in the NC and also to develop ‘pathways’ for the extra activities. Leadership and volunteering – extending the ‘step into sport’ initiative with ‘Step ON, Step IN, Step UP from 2008 to 2011. Swimming – increasing the opportunities to take part.
