Welcome to Newham School Sport Partnership
We believe and work to give every young person a sporting chance
Our vision is that all young people should receive high quality Physical Education (PE) lessons as well as have access to an outstanding range of extra-curricular sport and physical activity opportunities both on their school site and within their local community.
Supporting Education Establishments
The Partnership (formerly Cumberland SSP) has worked with primary, secondary and special schools and colleges in Newham for the last 18 years to increase the opportunities for children and young people. Currently 28 primary schools receive support from the Partnership through our Subscription Service.
Over the last 18 years we have developed a strong network of links with many National Governing Bodies of Sport, at both regional and local level. These collaborations have enable many young people to experience high quality coaching, competitions, leadership opportunities and supported transition to community clubs. Our work to develop opportunities in specific sports such as gymnastics, golf and hockey has brought together representatives to develop a cohesive pathway of opportunity and development for children and young people in the Partnership.
The Youth Sport Trust & Sport England also continue to support the NSSP's work to provide the School Games programme open to 60 schools and colleges in our area of Newham. Southern Road Primary school with Newham School Sports Partnership host the Schools Games Organiser, Lead Inclusion and FA Girls Partnership roles for 2020-21
Sporting & Health Providers
The Partnership also has links with a variety of sports and health providers, such as the NHS, not for profit organisations and local community sports clubs. These collaborations have helped to provide a wide variety of physical activities and sporting opportunities for young people in a diverse number of ways. Equally additional funding through successful grant applications and initiatives has enabled children to enjoy a wider sporting experience.
