3 YOUTH SPORTS TRUST Registered charity established in 1994 Their mission is to develop and implement quality physical education and sport programmes for 18 month to 18 year olds in school and their communities. First we are going to look at how the government promote mass participation in schools in this country.

4 Aims To ensure that children have the right to : Experience and enjoy PE and Sport The best teaching, the best coaching and the best resources Develop a healthy lifestyle Fulfil their sporting potential Experience and benefit from positive competition The YST have set up recent projects such as the Nike ‘Girls in Sport’ Project.

5 TOPs PROGRAMME (Primary Schools) Takes place in over 20,000 schools throughout the country. The TOPS programmes are nationally co-ordinated by the Youth Sport Trust and delivered locally throughout the county. The programmes are delivered as a package including practical training to teachers, resources and support and are designed to support the delivery of the national curriculum. The word 'TOP' is a trade name and does not stand for anything The Youth Sports Trust has developed a series of schemes for young people aged 18 months to 18 years called the TOPS Programme

6 TOP Tots (18 month to 3 year age group) The first of the programmes, TOP Tots uses physical activity to develop communication and language techniques, co- ordination, cooperation and social skills. TOP Start (3 to 5 year age group) TOP Start is focused on developing basic movement and ball skills. It is designed to encourage the full integration of children with disabilities. TOP Play (4 to 9 year age group) TOP Play offers this age group the chance to develop their core physical and movement skills.

7 TOP Sport supported by Sainsbury’s Active Kids (7 to 11 year age group) As well as developing skills in a range of sports for young people, the primary TOP programmes provide an enhanced set of resources and training for teachers. TOP Link (14 to 16 year age group) TOP Link encourages 14-16 secondary school students to organise and manage sport or dance festivals in local primary schools TOP Sportsability (all age groups) TOP Sportsability focuses on the integration of disabled and non-disabled young people through a variety of sporting challenges.

10 Dragon Sport (Welsh equivalent of the TOPs Programme) This scheme is based on New Zealand’s Kiwi Sport scheme and focuses on the recruitment of volunteers to provide extra curricular sport sessions for children. The main aims of Dragon Sport To give 7-11 year olds regular, well organised and enjoyable sporting experiences Develop strong club – school links.

11 Sports Colleges receive an initial grant to improve sporting facilities, and additional funding each year to carry out development plans. The 5 key aims of Sports Colleges are to provide: High quality teaching in PE and sport. Increased opportunities for gifted and talented performers Access to sports specific qualifications such as GCSE’s and A levels. Links with local primary schools, secondary schools and special schools. Improved sporting facilities and opportunities for the local community. Sports Colleges (Secondary Schools) Now we are going to look at how the government promotes excellence in schools in this country.

12 Sports colleges aim to strengthen the links between schools and the private or charitable sector sponsors; sponsors will support their Sports College with cash or goods sponsorship, and will also take an ongoing role in the development of the school. To become a sports college schools must raise £50,000 in sponsorship and then write a detailed 3 year development plan. Where is the closest sports college?
