Since County in the Community became a registered charity, our work within primary schools has seen us engage with more than 5,000 youngsters from Newport, Monmouthshire, Torfaen, Blaenau Gwent and Islwyn, in a varied range of programmes. To find out more about what County in the Community offer to primary schools across Gwent, or how we could benefit a school in your area, please contact our School Sport Coordinator Dan Harvey
We go into primary schools to deliver:
Premier League Primary Stars
This is a teacher mentoring programme aimed at developing teachers’ confidence and competence in delivering their own PE and School Sports sessions.
Sport, Move & Learn
The Sport, Move and Learn Project is a 6 week, school-based educational programme for children aged 9-10 years old. Its aim is to make children aware of the importance of a healthy diet and an active lifestyle, as well as encouraging physical activity. Primary school children in Years 5 and 6 spend 45 minutes completing a practical football session followed by 45 minutes in the classroom learning about topics relating to the body, nutrition and information about food groups.
Premier League Reading Stars
This is a 10-week literacy intervention programme designed to be delivered in schools with the aim of stimulating an interest in literacy in children aged between 9 and 13 who love football but lack motivation in reading.
