GSSN Welcome Back to a New Academic Year 2022/23

We are extremely excited about the year ahead which will see new schools joining the GSSN, and our faithful schools returning. We have planned a full calendar of festivals, shows, competitions, and participation events, something for every one of your pupils.

You should soon be receiving your Gloucester School Sports Handbook which contains our joint programme linked as always with the Gloucester Primary Schools’ FA, our partner Bob Owen. We are very proud of this offer and I’d like to personally thank both Bob and Belén for putting this together during the holidays.

Our first main CPD event, PE Conference, will be taking place at Oxstalls Tennis Centre on Wednesday 28th September, please book this important date into your diaries and book your place from Belén’s invitation. This day will not only provide you with information for the year ahead and inspiring workshops but also give you the opportunity to network with like-minded colleagues in your field.

All schools have now received our Specialist Curriculum Support form with our offer – please complete this and return it to us as soon as possible, so we can start booking our Specialist Team into your schools.

As the debate continues in Westminster on Physical Education as a core subject in schools, as a statutory entitlement for all children and young people we must feel positive about our subject. We know too well the power that Sport has in changing and improving the lives of our pupils. With our collective drive and determination, we really can make an impactful difference for our children.

I hope to see you all at the PE Conference, here’s to a great year ahead.

Kind regards

Cheryl & Belén
