Close to 300 Year 5 children engaged with the Huddersfield Town Foundation on a programme called ‘Safety Rangers’ recently!

Taking place every day across two weeks at Brian Jackson House, the programme is run by Yorkshire Children’s Centre in partnership with Thriving Kirklees.

Town Foundation staff delivered workshops on emotional health & wellbeing and physical health & nutrition.

It was fantastic to meet students and staff from six local schools: Clough Head, Fieldhead Primary Academy, Lowerhouses J&I, Netherhall Learning Campus, Newsome Junior School and Warwick Road Primary.

On the programme Katie Lockwood, 0-19 Health & Wellbeing Service Manager for Yorkshire Children’s Centre commented:

“YCC would like to thank Huddersfield Town Foundation for their hard work and dedication in bringing these sessions to life and adding an element of fun to the day.

“Over the 14 days, just short of 300 children took part and it was incredible to see the pupils’ enthusiasm to learning. Due to the nature of the delivery we know that this helps with the retention of these important messages, therefore children are more likely to carry this forward in their daily lives.

“We look forward to continuing to work with the Foundation in October 2022.”

The Town Foundation also supports primary schools through delivery of the Premier League Primary Stars programme.

With the 2022/23 academic year edging ever closer, there’s still time to enquire about how we can help deliver English, Maths, PE & PSHE – as well as the unique benefits being a Town Foundation partner school can bring you.
