Jamie Allen and Calvin Andrew visited Greenbank Primary School in Rochdale recently as part of the Dale in the Community’s commitment to the Premier League Schools Sport Programme.
The first team duo spent time in the classroom with the youngsters, as well as taking part in a coaching session.
The School Sport Programme is a project designed to provide Primary Schools with support to improve PE and sport, as well as physical activities, both during curriculum and extra-curriculum time.
The programme is a joint partnership between the Premier League, the Professional Footballer’s Association (PFA) and the Football League. The Premier League has invested £10.5 million to roll this project out to 67 Premier League and Football League clubs, providing opportunities for thousands more PE lessons to be delivered by club coaches in England and Wales.
The Dale in the Community coaches have delivered sessions at twenty Primary Schools since the programme started in September.
