The 449 school sport partnerships we now have are a fundamental part of the infrastructure to deliver the national school sport strategy. The partnerships' key aim is to increase the percentage of five to 16-year-olds spending at least two hours a week doing high quality PE and sport. The last annual survey of school sport partnerships showed that 80 per cent. of the pupils in partnerships were doing at least two hours of high quality PE and sport in a typical week. All maintained schools are now in a school sport partnership.
