Bumper Term For Foundation Schools Programme

The Foundation worked with 124 schools in a bumper start to the new academic year. In total 9365 pupils from 85 Primary, 22 Secondary and 17 Special schools from across the North East have taken part in Foundation football and education projects.

Highlights include:

  • 1114 key stage one pupils received football coaching through the Premier League School Sports Programme
  • 1945 pupils took part in Toon Times workshops
  • 200 families completed a Family Football course

Staff training has also been high on the agenda this term with 15 education staff undertaking a four part training session with Northumbria University’s Education and Lifelong earning Department which culminated in a visit to Benton Dene School delivering activities to 80 pupils with special educational needs. 19 football development staff also gained a Level 3 Certificate in Supporting the Delivery of PE & School Sport. 

Andrew Foster, Project Manager said:

“It’s been a busy term in schools for the Foundation this Autumn and we are looking forward to having an even busier 2015. We have lots of schools booked in for the New Year but would welcome enquiries from other schools who are not already involved.”
