We are keen to ensure that sports facilities owned by schools and colleges are used as effectively as possible and are available to a broad range of community sports groups. That is why we have ensured that the school Governance Handbook highlights Sport England's publication 'Use Our School', which provides guidance to schools on how to maximise the use of their facilities.

The Use our School guidance can be found here: https://www.sportengland.org/facilities-planning/use-our-school/.
