We caught up with Year 5 Teacher, Blake Freeman PE lead from one of our partner schools; St Bedes Catholic Primary School.
Watch below a video from our Premier League Primary Stars Cup (round 2) at Parkgate Astro this January. A tournament where local children can play at the NY stadium in round 1, qualify for stage 2 which is a league format at our very own Parkgate Astro facility, schools are aiming to finish in the top 4 places to progress into the semi-finals taking place at the AESSEAL New York Stadium! The opportunity provides aspirational experiences for local young people and will hopefully inspire the next generation of local football talent wanting to play for the Millers.
Sports Participation Co-ordinator, Jordan Mayor Said:
“We have been working with St Bedes for several years now and its fantastic to have them as one of our partnering schools. We really appreciate it when teachers show this kind of support and want to inspire the children as much as we do”
Community Sports Coach, Ryan Green travels to St Bedes every Wednesday. As a partner school, we deliver a range of regular opportunities from PE curriculum, extra curricular clubs, Joy of Moving, education interventions in maths, English & PSHE as well as social action project to empower young people to make a difference in their local community. We also relate our sessions to important campaigns, from Ant-Bullying Week to World Book Day, Intergenerational Tackling Loneliness Projects, Children’s Mental Health Week, Ocean Rescue and Sports Leaders. All of which increased the positive impact on the pupils education and offers memorable experiences that develop important life skills for the future.
In 2022, we named Blake Freeman as Rotherham United’s Premier League Primary Stars ‘Superstar’, he was chosen because he has dedicated time to enable all young people and staff at their school the opportunities the Premier League offer young people in the community with a strong positive attitude and a real excitement for everyone involved.
