BPSS Core Services

'Excel Through Sport'

Through the BPSS opportunities, we aim to enable children and young people in Barnet schools to become confident, physically competent, emotionally resilient and empathetic citizens who can independently and successfully make sustainable healthy lifestyle choices and pursue personalised sporting and physically active pathways.

We work in partnership to:

  1. Increase participation in high quality sport and physical activity
  2. Work and communicate effectively with schools to meet need and fulfil expectations related to participation in sport and physical activity, widening access to sport and physical activity among low participation groups
  3. Support the development of progression pathways to ensure individuals reach their full potential
  4. Provide support and advice to maximise opportunities for Barnet Schools through the Government’s agenda for school sport and competition (School Games)

Our work is structured into 5 Strategic Themes. Although they are clear stand-alone themes – they all interlink and work unison to provide the Core Services for our BPSS member schools. These themes provide headline targets for BPSS:


To work with schools effectively to develop engagement and participation programmes including health based initiatives and Change for Life clubs as an opportunity to address those that are least active and encourage them to progress through the School Games model.

Competition for all:

To provide a centralised structure for Borough competitions, festivals and leagues by maximising on opportunities for Barnet through the Government’s agenda for school sport and competition, enabling ALL young people to achieve their personal best.

Club Pathways:

To develop a network of community clubs within Barnet schools, providing sustainable outposts for new and continued participation, bridging the gap between school and community sport. The Interventions will aim to attract new audiences and cater for young people that are currently not involved in sport outside of the curriculum.


To manage and coordinate leadership, volunteering and CPD opportunities for leaders, teachers and volunteers, equipping young people with employability skills and character development.

Sustain and Grow:

To build a sustainable Partnership by influencing, advocating, developing and implementing the policy of partners and providers and attract funding and resources to deliver the priorities to enable growth.

We offer our member schools a wide variety of services. 

We also allow non member schools the opportunity to access National School Games opportunities, that sit within the BPSS offer. Schools can access School Games events by contacting the BPSS team directly and paying a nominal fee (to cover event expenditure).

All our core services, competition fees and additonal information can be found in our resources section.
