School Sport

Our programme of sports delivery in primary schools is growing rapidly. We deliver PE lessons and extra-curricular sport sessions in over 60 local primary schools per week.

Our School Sport programme forms part of our strategy to increase sports participation, but coaches will also have our Trust’s values at the forefront of their minds during every session:

  • We believe that sports participation has the power to develop respect for the game, for opponents and teammates, and for coaches and officials. Our players, coaches and all other members of staff are important role models in this.
  • We believe that sports can empower people by allowing them to develop characteristics such as confidence, courage, leadership and organisation, which are so important for success.
  • We believe that both engaging in sports and seeing the achievements of others can inspire people to build greater motivation in their own lives, to set greater goals, and to have the courage to achieve them.

Throughout the year, thousands of school children will take part in thousands of hours of sporting activity delivered by Cambridge United, and in each session our focus on the values of respect, empowerment and inspiration will ensure that the personal development of each and every child is the primary aim.

We will also use this network of schools to maximise the impact of a number of other initiatives throughout the season, including visits from our players to primary schools to help disseminate a number of important messages related to the three key themes of our Trust: education, health and inclusion. An exciting collaboration with AstraZeneca also sees us combine the delivery of PE with science teaching at a number of primary schools across the region.
