Professional coaches have been heading into schools to help get more children interested in getting active and doing sport.

Coaches from the development schools visit a number of schools in the Daventry area, including Braunston Primary School.

Area manager Luke Wedgbury said: “We go into schools and provide them with sports coaching. That can be in the form of breakfast, lunchtime or after-school clubs, or like at Braunston in terms of PE lessons.

“It is of benefit to the schools because not all schools have access to trained sports coaches.

“We put on multi-sport sessions, covering all sorts of sports including basketball, cricket, and football.

“We also run the West Bromwich Albion Development Centres.

“The school community work we do is focused on having fun and getting children involved in sport, which is important after the Ofsted report last week which said that sports in many schools wasn’t up to scratch.

“We are trained and qualified coaches so we can put on good quality sessions to suit the children, and get them to really enjoy being active so they want to carry on outside of school.

“We are looking for a full-time coach for the Daventry community work and development centre. People can get in touch via bookings@developmentschools.co.uk.”
