"Tackling numbers has been an amazing project for the school. Because of the cross-curricular structure it supported the children to get involved with rugby who would normally not and vice-versa for children who love sport but not necessarily numeracy. The coaching was fantastic and it was also a great CPD opportunity for staff. The children loved every minute and they all thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thank you Leicester Tigers and Justin." - Melvin Hill PE Co-ordinator Costessey Junior School.
