Neasden Primary School, one of the Hull FC Foundations’ partner primary schools enjoyed some end-of-term fun with first-team players on Wednesday afternoon!
Black & White stars Jamie Shaul, Marc Sneyd and Dean Hadley headed out to the East Hull school to entertain pupils with some fun, and technical drills to test out their rugby skills.
Youngsters enjoyed contests on the wrestle mats, as well as showing off their evasion skills in various drills with the players.
The visit is all part of the club’s Partner Primary School project, which includes several great benefits of being involved.
Schools can choose from a range of engagement packages designed to offer support to Sport and Physical Education within schools that include many added benefits to the school including sports provision, player visits from the first-team squad, stadium tours, season tickets, rewards for attendance and much more.
Through the Partner Schools Sport scheme, the Hull FC Community Foundation offer a programme that will enhance and develop the sports skills of children in schools by delivering a varied menu of activities that allows youngsters to experience different sports and learn new skills.
Each programme that is delivered is specific to each individual school. Thus means the school can tailor-make the sessions, to effectively benefit their students.
The Foundation also deliver staff CPD sessions as part of each programme to help ensure that our delivery is sustainable and so that the teachers build confidence, experience different sports and learn new skills too.
All our staff have a vast amount of experience that supports the development of the whole child and will also support and offer guidance for pupils in their transition from participating in sport at school onto playing for local community clubs or other activity clubs.
The school sports partnership officers all have UKCC Level 2 coaching badges and are multi-skilled and multi-sport trained so they are able to ensure a high quality provision.
