Statement from the School Sport Partnership - COVID-19

The School Sport Partnership have taken the difficult decision to suspend all upcoming finals and cluster competitions until further notice in order to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of all students, staff and spectators involved. This is a decision that we have not taken lightly.

We appreciate that this may be disappointing, however we believe it is the most sensible thing to do at this stage.

Many schools and Multi-Academy Trusts have already informed us that SLT's have already decided that their students and staff cannot host or attend upcoming events, so we believe the timing is correct for us to also act. This will also help take the pressure away from schools and organisations as to whether they should attend these events or not.

We will be regularly reviewing the situation and ongoing central government advice and may issue further statements in due course.

If you have any questions please contact me directly, thank you for your understanding and take care.


Best Wishes


Angel Rhodes

Partnership Development Manager
