Primary & Intermediate School Sport


The primary and intermediate school environment is the first structured opportunity young people have to participate in a variety of sports.

Our vision is to nurture an equitable and inclusive environment for children to build a lifelong love of sport and physical activity through positive and meaningful experiences.

What services do we provide primary and intermediate schools?

  • We provide leadership for and deliver support to all primary and intermediate schools through quality sport initiatives and programmes such as the GO4it Fundamental skills programme.
  • We promote, profile and advocate for primary school sport events and programmes through positive, effective partnerships with all stakeholders
  • We report to a Principals Steering Group (PSG) and school sport delegates on a termly basis.
