Junior X Sport: Unity in Pensby to raise sporting standards.
The aim is to raise standards in PE and school sport, and to ensure that all pupils take part in a minimum of two hours of high quality physical activity each week, within and beyond school.
To help achieve this a qualified PE teacher from each partner secondary school, acting as a school sport coordinator, is being released from teaching for two-and-a-half days a week to help support other schools.
Dan Keefe, partnership development manager, said: ``The programme has been running for about three years, and has made people look completely differently at the way PE and school sport is delivered.
``By working together, we hope to share good practice and raise the profile of PE and school sport.
``Particularly in terms of highlighting the whole school benefits that participation in sport can bring such as better behaviour, improved concentration, self esteem and higher attainment. '' The new co-ordinators at Pensby are currently in the process of running a host of ``Talk about your Sport'' promotional assemblies in local primary schools.
They are also helping the schools to conduct an audit of existing provision.
