Boston United awarded £40k from The National League Trust
13 December 2016
Boston United Football Club and their community programme United in the Community have been awarded £40,000 worth of funding over two years. The funding comes from The National League trust to help support their Schools Partnership Programme.
The programme’s primary aim is to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools in Boston. It also aims to improve the knowledge and skills of teachers, whilst increasing the number of pupils taking part in sport and physical activity both in and away from school.
Nick Reeson, Community Manager, said, “We’re pleased to be awarded this funding from The NLT as it will help us form strong partnerships with local schools and demonstrate a commitment to work together. Together with local schools, our overall aim will be to improve physical activity levels for school children, increase sports participation and promote learning through sport. Our partner schools will also be entitled to a range of unique opportunities like PE Mentoring Services, Extra Curricular activities and clubs including a wide range of sports, our Pilgrims ‘Goal’den Ticket initiative allowing children to access a UITC session free of charge, and Playground Leaders.”
The Boston United Schools Partnership Programme will have five core objectives: to improve the standard of PE and School Sports, improve the knowledge of staff, increase participation and engagement in sport and physical activities in and out of school, develop partnerships and form closer links with schools and to develop year 5 and 6 pupils to become Playground Leaders.
Boston United and UITC already work with several local schools in the Borough of Boston, but they are looking to work with other local schools to improve their sports and physical education provision.
