The ability to access good facilities within the local community is vital to any sports organisation, yet many clubs struggle to find places to play and train.
A large number of sporting facilities are located on school sites and making these available to sports clubs can offer significant benefits to both the school and the local clubs.
Sport England has produced guidance, online resources and toolkits to help open up and retain school sites for community use. The Accessing Schools web pages are undergoing development to maintain the currency and usefulness of content for its users. Existing content can still be accessed during this time. Any enquiries can be directed to our Accessing Schools mailbox.
