The Leicester Tigers Community Team is now looking for schools to participate in the Greggs Tackling Health programme starting in January.

Delivered nationally by Tigers and colleagues at Premiership Rugby clubs, the Greggs Foundation is pleased to offer primary schools across England the opportunity to take part in the Greggs Tackling Health programme.

This is an interactive project for children aged 7-8 which takes a holistic approach to teaching them about their own health, wellbeing and about leading a healthy lifestyle with a rugby focus.

Greggs Tackling Health has been developed alongside Premiership Rugby’s new App, ‘Premiership Rugby Champions’. This innovative cross curriculum-based digital app has been developed with expert learning technology company Aspire 2Be to inspire primary school children to get moving while developing important life skills.

Teachers can bring learning to life with interactive resources including tackling health, numeracy and character, with digital literacy development at the heart of the content.

Developed by teachers for teachers, Premiership Rugby Champions will provide you with interactive, themed project-based lesson plans and materials for in the classroom and outside.

Knighton Mead PE lead Charlie Whitham said: “The Tigers’ delivery of Gregg’s Tackling Health provided a fantastic opportunity for children to learn from positive role models and has truly encouraged them to be more active and make healthier choices.”

After the challenges Covid has presented and the impact it continues to have on our community, we at Leicester Tigers, now more than ever, are committed in our efforts to support our essential workers and are dedicated to tackling important issues such as obesity and an unhealthy lifestyles, educating pupils to make healthier choices.
