This post will be to help circulate information, content and continue the conversation following The Schools and Community Football Conference on Monday 24 June. We were delighted to welcome delegates from across the UK and Europe from business, academic, education, sport and football to Burton Albion Football Club for what turned out to be a quality event helping schools and football clubs begin to develop more meaningful and effective partnerships.
Please see the schedule and delegate information for the day here.

Not only was Monday the day to kick off National School Sport Week, it was also the day #PEWales made a landmark announcement around sport and PE in Wales. The announcement came from Tanni Grey-Thompson (@Tanni_GT) via a report you can access here: Physical Literacy – an all Wales approach to increasing levels of physical activity for children and young people. You can also listen to Tanni Grey-Thompson on the BBC here or read Prof. Laura McAllisters take on the report here.
