Dan Monckton | School Services Manager
"The Foundation works with a multitude of nurseries and primary schools within the local area. Our aims are to provide high quality provision to create opportunities and pathways for every young person we come into contact with. Whether that be in inter school sports or signposting to local teams to provide longevity to their sporting likes.
We aim to deliver high quality physical education within all our local schools in all areas of the physical education of the national curriculum. We provide this in different formats such as team teaching, continued professional development for staff and any staff cover that is required. To further this, we provide extra curricular clubs that build upon the foundations we lay within curriculum time, to enable children to have positive experiences of many different sports.
At the foundation, we aim to be more than physical education providers and by providing our health workshops, we certainly are more. Whether it’s our Get On Board mental health workshop, or out Fylde’s Fit physical workshop, we aim to enhance children’s lives through the means of our provision".
As our partner schools have experienced, we also host our schools in our “School of the Week” initiative, which allows the school to select a number of pupils to attend a AFC Fylde matchday. Within this matchday, the young people will get to experience playing on the pitch, meeting the players, being flag bearers and much more.
