PE School Sport Offer

Quality coaching mapped to the curriculum

PE National Curriculum

We have a comprehensive programme which assigns qualified coaches to schools to deliver PE lessons at Key Stage 2.

All our lessons are based on the National Curriculum.

Assessments are prepared by the coaches in conjunction with the school to measure the children’s attainment levels.

“You establish excellent relationships with staff and children. Managing difficult classes well and children thoroughly enjoy the sessions. Many identify the coaching as the highlight of their year.”
King George V Primary School-Sandwell

PPA Cover

The Albion Foundation’s Schools and Communities department has a proven track record of delivering high quality PE, enrichment and PPA provision in both primary and secondary schools in Worcester, Birmingham and the Black Country.

Hawbush Primary School FeedbackOur coaches deliver sessions in line with the National Curriculum, and receive regular CPD and attend accredited courses in order to successfully coach a whole variety of sports including gymnastics, dance, ball skills, invasion games, striking and fielding activities, and athletics.

After seeking guidance from schools contacts, PE co-ordinators and sports partners, we have constructed a scheme of work which develops the acquisition of skills in both Key Stage One and Key stage Two children, allows them to evaluate their performances, and showcase methods of further improving their performances.  We have more recently been introducing more ‘physical literacy’ into delivery pedagogy, in order to test the children’s ability to describe how their body feels during activities, using advanced terminology.

Starting from September 2013, each school that buys into PPA/enrichment provision, will enter into the Schools Loyalty Scheme, where The Albion Foundation will reward schools buying into ‘banks’ of work with incentives such as match tickets and signed merchandise.  This will be done using a points scoring system, where schools will be able to chart their incentives, and see other ways to enhance their loyalty score.

The brand of working for West Bromwich Albion FC ensures that we establish an effective bond with children, which plays a positive part in ensuring class and individual behaviour management is maintained, and can act as a way of engaging with children who may be disruptive in PE environments.

All coaches are minimum Level 2 qualified in at least one sport, fully CRB qualified, and trained in first aid and safeguarding.Hawbush Primary School Feedback 2

After school clubs can be delivered to a ratio of one child to 16 children, with payment either made by the parent of the child, or paid for by the school.  This is a more fun and informal session, with skills topics delivered by the staff, before tournament or game play activities end the session.  We currently are able to deliver a wide range of sports, including football, cricket, badminton, basketball, tennis, athletics, tag rugby, dodge ball and tri-golf.  All coaches are minimum Level 2 qualified in at least one sport, fully CRB qualified, and trained in first aid and safeguarding.

“Over time, the provision offered by The Foundation has grown and improved. They are constantly seeking ways to support schools and are always willing to tailor the provision to meet an individual school’s needs. Longer term projects which help deliver leadership and co-operation skills have also the added perks of player visits, signed footballs, inter-school tournaments and the possible scouting of gifted and talented footballers, etc… have also become an integral part of our partnership.” Head Teacher – Hawbush Primary School

Breakfast, Lunch and After School Clubs

We are able to help your school extend its provision by offering a variety of extra-curricular activities to suit the needs of your school and more importantly its pupils

Children will follow a coaching plan based around the core topics of the chosen sports. These can include football, cricket, tri golf, dance and many others.

“The after school clubs and lunch time support that we receive from WBA have enabled our children to greatly improve both their enjoyment of and ability in sporting activities. The sessions are always well led and reward schemes have helped to raise children’s self esteem.”
