The North Suffolk Health and Sports Partnership values the importance of working with professional local organisations in the community. These partnerships, formed over the last 6 years, have allowed our Sport & Health Partnership to grow rapidly in recent years, aiming to meet the needs of all our local schools.
In September 2017 Sentinel Leisure become the official sponsors of our partnership until 2020. This joint approach has helped both parties meet the challenge of improving the health and wellbeing of Wavaney. This agreement also gives the partnership access to Waterlane leisure centre for many of our events, which sits in the centre of our community
In September 2017 our Partnership formed a fresh but strong relationship with the newly created company Go Geronimo. GO Geronimo was created from the NHS team in Great Yarmouth and specialise in health, wellbeing and sports coaching with both primary and secondary students.
Suffolk Sport has been a long term key partner of our partnership since its creation. Within their role as County Sports Partnership they offer all primary schools advice and support on the PE Premium, as well as guidance and support around the new health agenda in schools. Lastly they play a key role in running and facilitating all level 3 School Games events in the county. For more information about their role please click on their logo below.
One Life Suffolk are the healthy lifestyle service funded by Suffolk County Council. As part of their service they offer a FREE 6 week school-based intervention with the aim to raise awareness of healthy eating and physical activity. It also allows children and young people to explore how they can positively impact their lives through food and activity choices. An important secondary aim of the programme is to, over time, reduce the overweight and obese population in school children. They run many of these programmes across Suffolk so if you’d like to get involved please use the contact details below
