real world of sport.

Last year

HUCSF worked with 8 schools in the town and surrounding area: Ward Jackson,

Throston, Grange, Rift House, West View, West Park, Pentland and Jesmond

Gardens.

During the

course of the project we work with teachers to support their delivery and

develop their skills, knowledge and confidence in the subject.

The emphasis

is on empowering the teacher, to allow for sustainable improves in the school's

delivery of high-quality PE and school sport post project.

The objectives of the scheme are to:

  • Enhance the knowledge, skills and confidence of teachers in order to improve the delivery of PE and school sport
  • Increase children's enjoyment, participation and skills in competitive and non-competitive sports and physical activity needed to achieve their goals.
  • Enhance children's interest, understanding and confidence in English and maths
  • Support young people into further participation pathways in sport
