Primary schools across Leicester and Leicestershire can benefit from the support of the Leicester Tigers community team as part of three-week ‘back to school’ programme.
With schools scheduled to open from March 8 following the latest government lockdown update, teachers will be facing a number of challenges as they continue to work hard to get school life back to normal for thousands of youngsters across Leicester & Leicestershire.
The club is here to offer a helping hand.
With the support of club partner Nottingham Building Society, Tigers community coaches are offering their services across all primary school ages during this challenging period to help support children’s integration back into school life with fun physical activity and education sessions throughout the day and even after school.
If you think we can help, simply send in your school’s request and interest to the club’s community email below and the team will do their best to accommodate within its current resources.
Some ideas with how Tigers community can help include:
- Running morning, lunch and after-school sport sessions
- Supporting pupils with the ‘Active Mile’ programme
- Full-day – multiple classes Tag Fun and Games
- Multi-sport programmes
- A visit by club mascot Welford
- Get involved with the full six-week Nottingham Building Society Tag programme
The Nottingham Building Society Tag programme has been an ever-present part of Year 3 and 4 schooling over the past few years, hosting festivals following five weeks of lessons within schools across Leicester and Leicestershire. Additional classroom sessions are based around the topic of ‘money management’ and financial awareness as the club continues to offer this programme for the period through to Easter.
All of our Leicester Tigers community coaches follow Rugby Football Union best practice guidelines in regard to Covid-19 and will work within your school’s specific protocols to minimise any risk.
