Cullingworth Primary School teachers learn specialist sporting skills
9:00am Sunday 9th February 2014 in News
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.”
