Primary Skills

Primary Skills sessions are delivered by fully qualified sports coaches studying at Northumbria University. Not only will children have weekly positive, fun and safe physical activity, Primary Skills also looks to use sport to deliver important social lessons and messages to help youth development, community development and health & wellbeing. Workshops are built into a school’s tailored programme and, can be delivered on a variety of topics to suit school/ pupil needs:

  • Physical Health, Wellbeing, & Nutrition
  • Teamwork and Anti-Bullying
  • Mental Health & Wellbeing
  • Careers in Sport
  • Other (any additional topics can be requested and we will try to cater for this)

If your school wishes to become part of the Primary Skills programme, please see our information document and contact Sport Engagement Manager David Jones on or 0191 277 3223
