HLT School Sport Partnership launches “scholarship through health and well-being” mission with Primary PE Leaders.

September saw the Healthy Learning Trust (HLT) host over 57 primary school PE subject leaders from all across Trafford in the first subject leader event of the new academic year.

 The morning started with a welcome from Julie Hazeldine, CEO of the Healthy Learning Trust, who provided the context for the event and the role that the HLT will be playing in the development of healthy, happy learners across Trafford and beyond.

Attendees were then given national and local updates by Kay Statham, lead for the Healthy Learning Trust School Sports Partnership (HLT SSP) and School Games Organiser, on areas such as Primary Sport Premium, competitions, CPD and the benefits of membership of the HLT SSP, which has gone from strength to strength and now has 26 member schools.

Kay Statham, lead for the HLT SSP and School Games Organiser said, ‘It was great to see record numbers of our partner schools attending today. We are very lucky in Trafford to have so many teachers who are passionate about healthy lives, PE and school sport. With the information that they have received I hope they feel empowered to share our vision for improving outcomes for young people through the power of PE, school sport and physical activity”

CEO of the Healthy Learning Trust Julie Hazeldine added – “The Healthy Learning Trust School Sports Partnership works closely with local schools, ensuring that young people across the borough have access to high quality PE, School Sport and physical activity, creating a sustainable legacy within schools across Trafford. This is key to the HLT mission to deliver scholarship through health and well-being.”
