The British Olympic Association and the British Paralympic Association
will partner together to take the Get Set programme forward. A new
website will be launched featuring a range of resources including
activity ideas, assemblies, project ideas and films focused on the
Olympic and Paralympic Values. Teachers will also be able to share their
work and ideas with each other through the site.
The announcement was made at the Get Set conference in London hosted by
Olympian Jonathan Edwards and attended by Seb Coe, Edward Timpson MP,
Andy Hunt and Tim Hollingsworth and more than 450 teachers and school
leaders from Get Set network schools across the UK.
Seb Coe, LOCOG Chair, said: ‘I have travelled the UK in the past four
years to see first hand how our education programme has inspired an
interest in sport in young people. I’m delighted that the BOA and BPA
are partnering to ensure that Get Set lives on and the Olympic and
Paralympic values continue to be integrated into the curriculum of
schools across the UK.’
Throughout the conference delegates shared their experiences of Get Set
and heard more about the success of the programme which saw more than
26,000 schools and colleges register to receive access to resources and
opportunities inspired by London 2012. 91% of registered schools have
undertaken Paralympic activity as part of the programme and 84% of
teachers say that Get Set had a positive impact on their enthusiasm and
motivation in 2012.
