School Sports Partnership

The Dartmoor School Sport Partnership (DSSP) is an inclusive hub of excellence who provide a raft of specialist Physical Education and School Sport support. The DSSP consists of 7 specialist Physical Education Teachers enhanced by other coaches and an administrator. We are based and supported at the South Dartmoor Academy and work in local clusters linked with feeder secondary schools from a large area spanning Exmouth to the Devon south coast, down to South Hams and up onto Dartmoor. The DSSP works with 66 primary and secondary schools and also fulfils a strategic role working with Special Schools across the county, and the lead practitioner also sits on the strategic county LOC body who have an overview of the development of school sport within the county.

There are three key areas that we work with which are: training predominantly to teachers and school deliverers, events and coaching.

Training: throughout the year there are numerous opportunities for staff and school young leaders to receive training, all delivered by our specialist team

Events: we pride ourselves on our extensive and varied programme which includes whole class festivals, competitions leading onto countywide further competitions, events for different targeted areas such as pupils with special needs and able pupils.

Coaching: we run our own high quality coaching company called Inspire Coaching which is offered at competitive rates to ensure schools can access excellence for their pupils

Every day there is something happening somewhere within the DSSP. In fact last year we run approx. 400 activities under the DSSP name!
