Opening School Facilities (OSF) is a Department for Education (DfE) school funding programme to meet the goals of the Government’s School Sport and Activity Action Plan (SSAAP). The aim of the programme is to help schools open their existing sport facilities, including school swimming pools, for a broader range of young people and to support the wider community by partnering with sporting organisations, who can help deliver activities in these settings.

Active Kent and Medway is proud to support the OSF programme and is committed to working with schools and local activity providers to:

  • Enable them to deliver new or enhanced activities that will increase the range of face-to-face opportunities for young people (and their families)
  • Ensure the schools are aware of further opportunities to open their sports facilities sustainably beyond the end of the programme

“Removing the barriers to our young people accessing sports facilities so that they can lead an active life is core to our mission. We will be assisting schools and other partners so that they can provide activities which have been co-designed with young people to meet the specific needs of those who are least likely to be active.” Graham Razey, Active Kent & Medway Partnership Chair
