Lincolnshire’s biggest primary school event returns on Friday 8 June with another packed agenda comprising of keynote speakers, local providers and practical workshops. There will also be updates on national strategies and policies and how they will impact local schools.

The event will start with the YST’s expert in building and supporting school networks, Ben Grady.  Ben said: “I will be  bringing to life the relationship between wellbeing and achievement and how they are so entwined. My aim is to inspire delegates to access the support and resources on offer and help them to go back to their schools to embed great practice that makes a positive difference to their children.”

Organiser, Naz Sutton added: “The conference is going from strength to strength and we’ve tried to add even more to the agenda this year! We’ve listened to what teachers have told us, so there is a good amount practical work, such as the Active School planner sessions. I am confident that everyone will leave with more ideas, new contacts and knowledge of how to make their pupils more active in order to lead a healthier and happier life.”Lincolnshire Sport's Lincolnshire PE and School Sport Conference 2017 held at Bishop Grosseteste University, Lincoln.
