Active School Communities Toolkit for Community Sports Organisations

Download to read offline

This comprehensive toolkit aims to support community sports organisations in establishing partnership with and working with schools, whatever their existing level of engagement. Complete beginners will find the level of detail useful, others may not require so much information but can use the toolkit to check and improve their current practice. The toolkit was developed by the partners of the EU Erasmus+-supported Active School Communities project, BG BeActive (lead), Youth Sport Trust, International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA), Hungarian School Sport Federation (HSSF), DGI, South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture, Sport and Citizenship, UISP, Sports Union of Slovenia and Willibald Gebhardt Institute.

The toolkit supports the NowWeMOVE campaign and #BeActive event European School Sport Day, established by HSSF and scaled up by partners including ISCA and BG BeActive.

SELF ASSESSMENT TOOL to look at current practice1 EXAMPLES, CASE STUDIES, GUIDANCE 2 ACTION PLANNING TOOL3 EVALUATION TOOL to measure the impact of the implementation4 To achieve these benefits, a physical activity programme needs to be well planned and delivered, offering opportunities for intensive and sustained physical activity This comprehensive toolkit aims to support sports organisations, whatever their existing level of engagement. Complete beginners will find the level of detail useful, others may not require so much information but can use the toolkit to check and improve their current practice.
  5. 5. ASC – SPORTS ORGANISATION TOOL 5 WHAT IS THE BEST PROCESS FOR ENGAGING WITH SCHOOLS? CLICK TO VIEW CASE STUDY 3 Identify your offer and understand school needs Improve your offer Agree your club’s commitment Build trust and find common ground Monitor and evaluate the impact Plan and trial a pilot programme
  6. 6. ASC – SPORTS ORGANISATION TOOL 6 AGREE YOUR CLUB’S COMMITMENT Is the club committed to raising activity levels in all young people? Is the club environment inclusive and welcoming to all young people? Is the club willing to engage explicitly with the least active young people? Does the club have appropriate resources to devote to the programme? Workforce capacity Workforce expertise Physical and financial resources Has the club appointed somebody to lead involvement in the ASC project? Capacity Credibility Authority It is important to remember that the main goal of the ASC programme is to increase physical activity in young people, especially the least active. While there will be other benefits to young people, schools and clubs, your club must subscribe to this main goal. Your club will be contributing to the physical, emotional and social wellbeing of the young people in your community.
  7. 7. ASC – SPORTS ORGANISATION TOOL 7 IDENTIFY YOUR OFFER What can your club provide to increase the school’s existing offer? Workforce capacity Workforce expertise Physical resources Additional opportunities for increased physical activity in all young people New activities Progression routes Increased capacity Explicitly engaging the least active? New activities A new approach Targeted opportunities Schools are very busy and complex organisations. You need to help them find solutions to their existing challenges. If your offer is easy to understand, meets school priorities and doesn’t create a lot of extra work, it is much more likely to be seen favourably. Your club will be contributing to the personal development of some of the school’s most in need students.
  8. 8. ASC – SPORTS ORGANISATION TOOL 8 FIND COMMON GROUND Do you understand the school’s key priorities? What national and local challenges does the school face? How can physical activity contribute to improved educational outcomes? Are there specific cohorts of young people that are a priority? Can you come to a shared understanding with the school’s leaders? Share the evidence for increased physical activity as a way of improving outcomes Maintain a conversation focused on meeting the school’s priorities Develop a shared understanding of the potential of partnership Have you agreed the objectives of the project? What do we want to achieve? How will we know if we’ve been successful? What will the intervention look like? You don’t need to become experts in education, but it will help you if you show an understanding of the kinds of things that are important to schools: • The challenges it faces • The type of students who might benefit most • The difference that physical activity can make
  9. 9. ASC – SPORTS ORGANISATION TOOL 9 PLAN AND TRIAL A PILOT PROGRAMME Have you identified a key priority of the school? How can increased physical activity support improvement? Who will be your chosen cohort of young people, and why? What will success look like over the life of the project? Have you designed an intervention that explicitly targets the priority? Does your success measure focus on this priority? Have you agreed a vocabulary and approach with all parties? Are all staff sufficiently confident and competent in this approach? Is your intervention relevant and attractive to its intended audience? What will make it attractive to the least active? What barriers to participation have you addressed? How are you and the school targeting your key audience? Start small – use a pilot programme to develop relationships, build trust and establish a common way of working. Work with the school (including its pupils, if possible) to design an offer that is exciting, attractive and enjoyable for all young people, including the least active. Ensure your coaches and volunteers are given the opportunity to extend and strengthen their own skills and expertise.
  10. 10. ASC – SPORTS ORGANISATION TOOL 10 EVALUATE THE IMPACT Have you identified the sources of evidence you will use? What are the key quantifiable indicators? What qualitative evidence will you gather and from whom? Have all partners agreed on systems for gathering and sharing evidence? How will you consult with all key stakeholders? Have you agreed a clear process for gathering and analysing evidence? Have you chosen to appoint independent evaluators? Have you allocated sufficient resources for an effective evaluation? How will you share findings from the evaluation? Will you use interim findings to make small adjustments to your project? What are your plans for discussing the findings and reaching conclusions? What is the process for using the findings when developing new projects? WHAT DIFFERENCE HAVE YOU MADE? You might not see a great rise in fitness levels, but what impact have you had on: • Participation rates in the least active young people • The numbers of young people attending clubs outside school • Specific young people or particular groups of young people Now that you have evidence, what will you use it for?
  11. 11. ASC – SPORTS ORGANISATION TOOL 11 IMPROVE YOUR OFFER What did the evaluation tell you? Impact on your key priority? Impact on physical activity levels in your audience? Effectiveness of the partnership? What improvements will you make to your offer? Will you change your priority? Will you change your activity? Will you change your approach to delivery? What new resources will your improvements require? Physical and financial resources Professional development for staff Commitment from different partners Don’t wait until the end of the pilot to make changes – use the evidence you are gathering to make small improvements as you go along. Look at both the process – how you did things, and the product – what the impact was on young people. Begin the process again, using what you have learned along the way to improve your offer.
