Cullingworth teachers are learning about sports from the experts during special PE sessions.

Staff from the Sports Cool company have been commissioned to run PE lessons twice a week at Cullingworth Primary School.

The visiting coaches are also using lessons to pass specialist skills to the class teachers.

The school is funding the sessions with part of its £9,000-a-year special PE funding, which is provided to every school in the UK by the government.

Sports Cool, based in Lancashire, already runs after-school dodgeball, football and multi-sports sessions.

A school spokesman said: “We were really impressed with them – they are really professional.

“They are now delivering lessons while training teachers at the same time. They’re covering the whole range of sports. The kids are loving it.”
