A WIDNES primary school is one of 50 across the region to improve their PE and sports curriculum to increase their pupil's health and well-being.

Spinney Avenue CE Primary has transformed its sports provision thanks to LSSP, a not-for-profit charitable incorporated organisation that is dedicated to proving children with the best possible experiences in sport.

Since establishing in 2000, LSSP has worked with more than 120,000 young people and currently engages 121 schools across the Liverpool City Region.

It includes a focus on life skill development and encourages children to enjoy being physically active and leading a healthy lifestyle.

Jimmy McGinn, partnership manager at LSSP, said: "Over our 19 years of business we’ve been fortunate to work with some brilliant schools to raise the profile and impact of PE, improve health and wellbeing and make sport accessible to all."

Emma Perkins, assistant head of KS2 at Spinney Avenue CE Primary, said: "The support from LSSP has been invaluable.

"The termly meetings with our partnership manager has been a superb resource to help plan the next priorities for our school.

"The quality of our sport coach, provided through LSSP, is also fantastic."
