Chester FC Community Trust offers high quality curricular and extra-curricular provision for primary and secondary schools across Chester, Cheshire West and North Wales.
Using the power and appeal of Chester FC, the school sport programme aims to engage and inspire children while providing support to schools and teachers.
Partner schools benefit from attendance at parents evenings, player visits, stadium tours, match tickets, fundraising support and training for school staff.
FA qualified coaches deliver structured PE lessons in line with the current National Curriculum to provide an affordable solution for PPA cover. Coaches can also work alongside school staff and lead or support delivery to help increase confidence.
The school sport offer include CPD workshops for school staff, breakfast and lunchtime clubs, PSHE programmes, gifted and talented schemes, numeracy and literacy skills, respect sessions, sports days, inter-school competitions and festivals,
Chester FC Community Trust will work with headteachers and PE coordinators to design and deliver a bespoke programme.
After School Clubs
Chester FC Community Trust's after-school clubs offer children fun, professional, inclusive and safe coaching in a structured environment.
The programme contributes to increased physical activity through football and multi-sport sessions, small-sided games and challenges, developing fundamental movement skills, improving technique, building confidence and having fun.
Coaches hold FA qualifications along with DBS and first aid certificates, and will wear Chester FC kit for recognition and provide all necessary equipment (excluding goals).
Partner schools benefit from player visits, stadium tours and match tickets while children will receive certificates at the end of each term.
Sessions can take place on grass, 3G or artificial surfaces, hard courts or indoors, and the club start and finish times can be amended as required.
Packages can be tailored to meet schools' specific requirements but as a guideline clubs can run with a minimum of 12 children and typically cost £25 per coach per hour or £2.50 per child per session (costs based on a coach ratio of 1:16 children).
