As Partnership Development Manager of Woodcote School Sport Partnership, I would like to extend a warm
welcome to all schools involved. Woodcote SSP is one of 3 partnerships within Croydon and includes 1
College, 7 secondary or academy schools and 32 primary and special schools. The aim of the partnership is
to achieve high quality physical education and school sport in all schools, and to enable sport to be used in
improving all areas of a pupils development. At present 49% of pupils in years 1 to 11 within Woodcote SSP
schools currently take part in 3 hours or more of physical education and sport each week. The past few years
our task has been extended to encompass a greater vision of working in partnership with schools, community
clubs and volunteer organisations to create opportunities for every child from 5 – 16 years old to receive 2
hours of high quality PE within the school day and a further 3 hours outside of school each week. These
excellent links that have been established are enabling children throughout the Partnership to access a great
array of sporting opportunities and to get involved as leaders inspiring younger pupils through sport.

Over the years the Competition Manager has worked alongside National Governing Bodies to ensure a depth
and breath of competitions have been offered to partnership schools. We are again this year continuing with
the virtual competitions in cross country and mini Olympics to ensure every child within a primary school has
the opportunity to take part in a competitive event. In 2009-2010 the percentage of pupils in years 1-11 who
were involved in inter school competition within Woodcote SSP increased by 21%, that’s an extra 3149

This booklet has been produced to explain the workings of the partnership and to include some important
dates of events and CPD opportunities. Also included are useful forms that may be required on a regular

I look forward to working with you over the forthcoming year.

                                             Photograph consent

The School Sport Partnership takes the issue of child safety very seriously and this includes the use of
photographic and video images of pupils. Whilst many pupils and parents enjoy seeing photographs and
video images of the pupils or their work we are mindful of our duty of care towards pupils to protect them from
any inappropriate contact.

At competitions and events that are organised through the Partnership photographs are often taken to be
included in the School Sport Partnership newsletter and website as well as in school material. Should a pupil
attending an event not have consent to be included in such publicity the organiser of the event must be
informed on arrival so that they may make the necessary arrangements.
