Sport & Physical Activity Commissioning Plan

Leicestershire Public Health continues to distribute sport and physical activity funding through Active Together as part of the annual Sport and Physical Activity Plan for the county.  In the past, this funding has helped the NWLSSP to develop its staffing infrastructure and deliver popular programmes such as Alternative Sports and Mental Health Workshops.

Funding is allocated for delivery between April and March, with priorities being set out for partners in advance.  For 2021/22 the NWLSSP will be developing programmes to meet the following guiding principles:

  • Active Travel
  • Fundamental Movement skills
  • Inactive Girls & Boys
  • Workforce Development
  • Daily Boost

Collaborative working groups across the county are aligning this work to the Whole School Approach model.  The 8 guiding principles for this being to develop and deliver multi-component interventions, ensure skilled workforce, engage student voice, create active environments, offer choice and variety, embed in curriculum, teaching and learning, promote active travel and embed monitoring and evaluation.
