After-school football is currently offered to children to Years 5 and 6 on a weekly basis, where we place an emphasis on the children spending as much time as possible playing the game in order to build up their confidence and enjoyment.
The children play either 6 or 7-a-side matches to ensure as much direct involvement in the play as possible for each player. Fixtures are arranged with local schools to allow a healthy competitive spirit to flourish. This year, the school team is undefeated in 6 games!
We have begun to develop links between the school and coaching organisations and clubs, which will provide our pupils contact with fully qualified, specialist football coaches, who can offer high quality skills progression. We aim to widen the provision for after school football in the next academic year to hopefully include all year groups.
