Opening School Facilities – Phase 2

As part of the Governments cross departmental School Sport and Activity Action Plan, Sport England and DFE have announced that they will provide £10.1m funding for a project to support schools to open up their sports facilities, in order to broaden the offer of extra-curricular and out of school sporting and physical activities available to pupils and the wider community.

This funding follows on from a 12 month pilot Opening Schools Facilities Project in which North Yorkshire Sport led a collaborative project with County Durham Sport as one of 19 national pilot areas. Sport England will work with the nationwide network of Active Partnerships to distribute the funding.
