Sports Partnership


As a recognised provider of sport in the Peterborough area, the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust, through the Stanground Academy, has created a bespoke package which has been offered to all primary schools within the Stanground Cluster and further afield.

Our offer has been created after consultation with a number of key agencies within the sports sector including the Youth Sport Trust. It has been designed to meet a plethora of both fundamental and developmental areas.

We have also taken into consideration the fact that schools are to be held accountable for how they spend the funding, with OfSTED strengthening its coverage of sport and PE within the Inspectors' Handbook and supporting guidance, resulting in a more stringent and robust assessment of a schools PE provision.

Subsequently, some of the areas built into our offer include:

  • Ongoing continuous professional development (CPD) for staff, considering the OfSTED framework and meeting its requirements. Development of the PE curriculum and national agendas.
  • The provision of high quality PE teaching and specialist coaching linked to both the school and extended curriculum.
  • An array of sporting competitions, festivals and events across all year groups.
  • Partnership development and networking meetings/full membership to the Youth Sport Trust/School Games Mark accreditation.
  • The chance to truly create real sporting opportunities for all students in the Stanground Academy GDFT Sports Partnership.
