Thrapston Primary School

Corby / Oundle & Thrapston School Sports Partnership

COTSSP Membership

As part of our membership of our local sports partnership (COTSSP), we have access to a range of services and competitions.

We are Enhanced Plus members, which means that the partnership provides us with a specialist member of staff for half a day each week to support us in the development of our PE, sport and physical activity programmes. This support takes the form of curriculum mentoring and assessment guidance for staff, assisting the PE lead in developing the provision of different clubs and activities and adding value by supporting specialist projects. This member of staff also monitors the correct and suitable use of the Sports Premium Funding throughout the year.


In addition to this specialist support, we have access to a range of training and planning resources for PE and for bringing health and physical activity into the classroom. Additional support is available for sports development, swimming, change 4 life and community engagement through the partnership and our CSP, Northamptonshire Sport.

The partnership runs School Games activities for our area, and through our membership we also access a wider range of competitive opportunities including those for KS1 and in alternative/non-traditional sports.

Further initiatives offered by COTSSP include the School Games Values Baton Relay, Rugby World Cup Festival, young leaders conference and health champions training. You can find out more about COTSSP on their website:
