Fun For All At Calvert Trust

As part of Newcastle United Foundation’s Football For All project students from Benton Dene Primary and Benton Dene schools joined forces to attend an action packed day at Calvert Trust Activity Centre in Kielder.

Students participated in indoor climbing, attempting to reach the top of 3 different climbing walls.  This was proceeded by dashing through the inflatable obstacle course, ducking under barriers and scaling small inflatable walls. 

The afternoon saw learners enjoy whizzing down the zip wire and go on a mini adventure in the Kielder woodlands.  The trip was organised to develop integration of children with learning disabilities and those in mainstream schools.

Football For All is funded by Northumbria Police and Crime Commission and aims to create an awareness of disability in local primary schools through using the power of football and the brand of Newcastle United. 

Benton Dene teacher Mr Jarvis said “The opportunity for children to take part in outdoor activities allowed each child to use a range of skills such as team building, communication and problem solving. It also helped provide all of our children with a sense of achievement and enhanced their confidence and self esteem”.

Charlie, a student at Benton Dene, added “The Calvert Trust trip was very enjoyable and allowed me and my friends to learn and take part in activities we have never taken part in before. I was able to climb and reach the top of the wall which made me feel very proud of myself. All of the activities allowed me to be active and set me challenges that I tried my best to achieve.”

Newcastle United Foundation Project Coordinator, Mark Bertram, said “The day was a great success, students supported each other brilliantly throughout and it was great to see everyone participating together.  Huge thanks to Northumbria PCC for their continued support of Football For All”
