SPORTS services for children are under threat leaving its head struggling to keep activities going.
Thousands of youngsters in schools including Frodsham and Helsby take part in three hours of physical activity every week thanks to Cheshire Links School Sport Partnership.
But that is due to fall dramatically after the Department of Education confirmed plans to cut the funding for schools.
Chris Caskie, development manager, said: “The potential impact is devastating particularly for primary schools.
“School Sport Partnerships, including Frodsham, have worked to hugely increase pupils sporting opportunities, training teachers and young leaders and to forge links between schools and with community sports clubs.
“With fantastic support from schools and local sports clubs we have been hugely successful in raising participation levels.
“Schools, pupils, parents and young people value what we do, now there is a huge risk to what has been achieved, just two years before the Olympics.
“Education Secretary Michael Grove argues individual schools will receive their budgets directly to spend as they wish but there is no guarantee any will be spent on school sport.
“The reason the Government put funds in initially was not just for the sake of sport, but because there was so much evidence PE helped to raise attendance, improve behaviour and self-esteem, develop leadership skills, reduce obesity and get children off the streets, giving them something worthwhile to do.”
