Description

Stevenage Sporting Futures Team is a charity hosted in kind at Barnwell Community Leisure Centre. We currently work in partnership with over 40 primary, secondary and additional needs schools in Stevenage and the surrounding areas. Our overarching aim is "Creating Opportunities, Raising Aspiration & Positively influencing the health and wellbeing of young people through Sport and Physical Activity."

At Stevenage Sporting Futures Team our intention is:

  • To create opportunities and raise aspiration through sport and physical activity.
  • To continue to support schools to deliver High Quality PE and school sport through a coordinated local delivery system, ensuring through collaborative partnering, local needs are met and the greatest benefit is felt by all young people.
  • To provide aspirational role models through sport.
  • To provide a broad and varied range of opportunities for all young people to take part in physical activity, sport and leadership and volunteering
  • To work alongside Sporting Futures Training to support the roll out of their school based apprenticeship programme and ensuring these apprentices are used to develop a workforce to support the team in their competition and festival delivery.
  • Work with community clubs and partners to maximise opportunities for all young people and support their transition into community sport
  • To positively influence, maintain and improve the health and wellbeing of the young people of Stevenage.

Every year we rely on the kind contributions of our partner schools, through their sports premium funding, to ensure the team can deliver all aspects of programme not funded directly by the school games. Through external funding bids and links to local community partners, we hope to enhance the out of school offer available whenever possible.

We are hosted in kind by Barnwell School, which has recently been officially recognised as a Good School (Jan 2022), with strong leadership, an exciting curriculum offer and a vibrant Sixth Form.  As a school, their core values of PRIDE “Passion, Respect, Innovation, Determination and Empathy” permeate all that they do.

The Stevenage Sporting Futures Team are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
