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?)
