Competitions Managers

The Partnership works closely with the Norfolk Competitions Team and the National Governing Bodies (NGB's) of Sport to increase the quantity and quality of inter and intra school competition available to schools and young people. 

The Competition Manager infrastructure is currently being implemented, within school sport partnerships, across the 49 county areas in England and by January 2009 every county area will have a team of competition managers in place. 

Competition managers are an integral part of the network in raising the quality and quantity of competitive opportunities for all young people in line with the national governing bodies’ competition frameworks.

The competition managers are working closely with national governing bodies to ensure the alignment of the network and the priorities identified within each sport, in order to increase the number of young people engaged in regular competitive opportunities.

National School Sport Week

National School Sport Week, supported by Norwich Union, was launched by the Prime Minister and Dame Kelly Holmes at the Sports Colleges Conference on 1st February. The purpose of National School Sport Week is to:

  • Celebrate –all that been achieved in PE and School Sport over the last year. This includes Young Peoples participation, Young Peoples achievements and talent in PE & Sport and the contribution made by young leaders and volunteers and all those enabling Young People to achieve their potential
  • Launch- new initiatives and developments in PE and School Sport. This summer we will see the launch of new impetus and innovative developments in Intra School Competition
  • Profile- all the amazing things that are happening in PE and School Sport nationally and encourage all school to raise the profile of PE & School Sport at a local level.

The activities taking place in Schools throughout National Schools Sport week are:

  • Festivals of Sport – organised and led by young leaders for primary aged young people
  • Intra school competition – led by School Sport Coordinators and supported by young leaders
  • Inter school competition – led and organised by existing Competition Managers
  • Local activity – innovative and creative ideas organised at a local level

National School Sports Week for 2009 will be held during the week commencing Monday 29th June  

Intra-school Competition

National School Sport Week 2008 saw the launch of a new resource to support schools in establishing vibrant and modern intra-school competition programmes. 

The vision is that intra-school competition will focus on engagement and enjoyment by all through a social or recreational experience and embraces the needs of local young people aged 11-16.  

National School Sport Week saw the launch of the first year sports who have been working together to develop traditional, modified and alternative formats that will be both appropriate and appealing. 

More sports will be added over the coming 2 years to ensure that a wide ranging and flexible programme of intra-school competition can be provided for all young people, regardless of ability to experience positive competition, with a minimum of 25% taking part regularly* over the course of the school year.

Working in partnership with National Governing Bodies and School Sport Partnerships, a resource will be distributed to all School Sport Coordinator’s (SSCO’s) from September 2008 to support you in the development and implementation of high quality, regular intra-school competition. 

The challenge the thinking around targeting the middle 50% band to access intra-school competition as a mechanism to increase participation from 3 to 5 hours.
