Premier League School Sport Programme

About the Scheme

The school sports project is a new initiative to improve the provision of P.E through sport. The Project will involve Reading FC Community Trust coaches coming into deliver sessions in PPA time and in school sessions. All the coaches will be highly qualified and will be working to a syllabus of work which will cover all areas of development. The coaches will lead sessions alongside the school teachers during the sessions.

How schools get involved

For schools to get involved contact Liam Thorne on 0118 968 2151/ to either book the school in or to arrange a meeting to discuss in more detail what we offer. Schools will all receive a leaflet explaining what we do and what the offer is with contact details attached.

Schools signed up

So far we have delivered our programme to 18 schools in the first two terms. The schools we have been in have all said how much they have enjoyed the work we do and that the standard of the staff delivering in the programme is very high. The schools have all said that the benefits for the children participating and the staff involved have been high and that the response from staff is that they feel they are learning ways to input their knowledge better into the sessions they deliver throughout the week.

Number of children that have benefited from the programme so far

We have seen approximately 1000 children in the first two terms of the programme and look to continue to work in more schools to hopefully continue to impact the children and staff of as many schools as possible.
