Local partners' support
If you have a specific query about primary PE and sport, or are unsure where to find help, please contact the Tees Valley Sport School Sport Project Officer – Lis Greenwell – on 01642 342287 or email firstname.lastname@example.org Our support is offered freely.
School sport partnerships
Primary schools can access support from their district partnership manager or cluster co-ordinator. Each of the districts/ clusters offers different types and levels of support. Contact the relevant partnership manager for details of their services and costs. (School Games organiser support is provided freely.)

Making the most of other providers
Some services will be free; others will need to be purchased. Many will be high quality; some may not be. Most providers will want to create a partnership that is positive for all. Before schools engage a provider, consider the following:
How will this service support you to meet your PE and sport priorities? (Have you undertaken an audit or self-review and created an action plan?)
What do you want the service to achieve? (What pupil outcomes do you want to see and hear as a result?)
How will you get the best from the service? (Have you a recruitment and induction process? How will you seek and share feedback?)
How will you monitor the quality and effectiveness of the service? (Have you included a ‘probationary’ period and review in the contract?)
How will you evaluate the impact – on the pupils, staff and school? (Have you identified what evidence you need to gather – before, during and after?)
How will you make sure the service leaves a legacy in school? (How will you sustain the benefits beyond the service or if funding ends?)
