Join our Partner School Programme for 2020/2021

Published: 2nd July 2020

Local Primary Schools throughout Huddersfield and the surrounding areas have the opportunity to join Huddersfield Giants Community Trust Partner School Programme throughout the 2020/21 academic year.

At HGCT we have a vision of how we would like the future to look within Kirklees and the surrounding communities.

Our vision is that:

  • NO child leaves school obese!

Young people:

  • Confidently participate in sport & physical activity!
  • Lead healthy, active lifestyles!

Our School Partnership Programme looks to realise this vision by building strong working relationships with local schools dedicated to proactively promoting the health and well-being of pupils and their families. In practice this sees dedicated Huddersfield Giants Partner Schools Officers based within Partner Schools, each for one or more days a week throughout a school year, allowing staff to build strong positive relationships with staff and pupils.

Delivery is bespoke on a school by school basis to best meet the needs of each Partner School through mutually planning and agreeing an engaging and inspiring yearlong plan of delivery with each school. Your dedicated Partner Schools Officer will be highly skilled to deliver outstanding PE lessons, healthy eating programmes and literacy/numeracy intervention upon extra-curricular activities such as after-school clubs to support schools in achieving aims set by the national curriculum.

Although the programme is primarily aimed at pupils, we are keen to build a positive two-way relationship with staff and teachers too. Becoming a Partner School enables staff to take advantage of CPD opportunities and receive invites for events. Among further benefits, the whole school will receive an opportunity to attend Huddersfield Giants match days to celebrate the school partnership and to obtain FREE play vouchers for use at our home The Zone.

Included for the 2020/21 academic year, we are introducing a half term of the SkyTry initiative delivered alongside the schools partner package – Find out about SkyTry
