London 2012 will open its doors to the world on the 27th July 2012. This date is now less than two years away and as we move swiftly towards the opening ceremony we must remind ourselves of the promises made in our bid to host the magnificent spectacle of the Olympic and Paralympic Games. In the 'Singapore promise' London told the world that it was committed, "to use the power of the games to inspire millions of Young people to choose sport" not just in Britain, but all over the world.
In Britain, to achieve this we needed to raise the profile of sport across all age ranges and the government target, that all schools should offer a minimum of 2 hours of curriculum based Quality PE provision for all pupils was our first challenge back in 2005, when HASSP began its quest to inspire the youngsters in the partnership to 'choose sport'. Participation in sport and 'sporting activities' has been identified as having a unique role in supporting improved outcomes for children and young people.
Sport plays a very positive role in the lives of children and young people, supporting them to stay healthy and develop important social and life skills. With the continued help and support of Head Teachers and PLT's in all schools, the partnership now has an average of 124 minutes of curriculum based sporting provision across our primary and secondary schools and 97.5% of our primary schools have 2 hours on the curriculum.
