Show Racism the Red Card Event +

On Tuesday the 19th of January, the Tigers Trust worked in conjunction with Show Racism the Red Card to give children from Collingwood Primary School and St Georges Primary School the chance to learn about tackling homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying. Pupils from years 4, 5 and 6 attended the full day event, which was held at the Airco Arena.

 

During the morning, the pupils were split into three groups and got involved in a carousel of workshops. These workshops allowed the attendees to discuss a wide variety of subjects such as HBT bullying, racism and stereotypes, with a tour of the KC stadium also taking place.

The afternoon brought even more excitement, as a recap of the morning allowed the children to prepare some excellent questions for a panel of special guests. Hull City players Alex Bruce and Isaac Hayden arrived to share their experiences and answer numerous questions about HBT bullying and racism both inside football and out of it.

The pupils showed inquisitive thinking and great maturity with their questions and with so many asked, the panel were then given the tough task of picking the 3 best questions of the afternoon, with the winners getting prizes such as a T-shirt and mini football. After narrowing it down, the three winning questions were:

“If you were in the government, what would you do to try and get rid of racism?”

“How would you feel if someone was racist towards you?”

“If people are gay or lesbian, why do people choose to bully?”

As well as prizes for winning questions, all pupils received a goody bag and the opportunity to get a poster signed by the panel.

The day seemed to have a positive impact on all who attended, as Mr McGowan, a teacher from St Georges Primary School, said: “before today, the children probably didn’t know a great deal about homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying, but they seem to have learned a lot from the event.”

The Trust would like to thank all who attended and helped make the event a successful one, with special thanks to staff from Show Racism the Red Card and Hull City players Alex Bruce and Isaac Hayden for taking time out of their busy schedules to answer questions.

Springing to First Place! +

The Tigers Trust held their first football competition of 2016 last Thursday (14/01/16), at Soccer Kings for children in Year 2/3. Spring Cottage (pictured) went on to win after overcoming Leven in the final.

 

The format as ever, was 6 a side with 8 children in each squad. The schools taking part were Leven, Spring Cottage, Driffield, St Richards and Brandesburton (two teams). Event organiser and Football Development Officer, Ollie Ezard thanked all the schools for entering and complimented the children for playing the games in such good spirit and with superb attitudes.

On Wednesday 9th December, the KC was host to over 150 guests all celebrating the Tigers Trust anniversary year. The event was compered by BBC Radio Humberside’s David Burns, and special guests included Hull City club Captain Michael Dawson, Jake Livermore and Dean Windass.

The evening was opened by our Trust Manager John Davies, who spoke fondly about the last 25 years and made reference to the progress the Trust had made from starting off with a bag of footballs and a portacabin, to now moving over to the Airco arena facility in the New Year.

After the 3 course meal, we had live entertainment from local X Factor contestant Charli Beard, a live auction conducted by Ex Hull City player John Hawley and a Q & A with the first team players and Dean Windass; the players answered an array of questions that were supplied by our guests on the evening. 

The event was a great success and raised over £3500 for the Trust- which will be used to help support local community projects. We would like to thank everyone that supported the evening and look forward to seeing you at future events!

Hull City's Harry Maguire gets involved with Social Action +

Hull City star Harry Maguire joined a group of Tigers Trust NCS participants last week to help them with their social action project.

 

A group of 20 college students were at the Airco Arena in Hull helping paint and theme some of the changing room areas.

The young students had been on a residential for 3 days the previous week and had also enjoyed health cooking workshops, first aid training and fire training at Driffield Fire Station.

Harry Maguire commented “It was great to see everyone enjoying themselves and doing something worthwhile in the community.  The changing rooms looked great.”

The participants are part of the tigers Trust NCS programme which aims to take 16 / 17 years olds away on outdoor activity residential and also supports them in attaining 30 hours of social action projects in the community.  The autumn programme saw 94 young people go away with the Tigers Trust to Hawkshead in the Lake District and then work in the community at various projects across Hull and the East Riding.  NCS participants helped out at East Side Community Sports Trust, Hopwell Road and Saltend Community Trust.

Kristian Walmsley NCS coordinator for the Tigers Trust said “the social action part of the programme give the participants a chance to do some meaningful work in the community.  The Airco Arena has been great for the young people to plan the work, go out and source the materials needed and then complete the painting and decorating.  Most of them managed to get some paint on the walls too!”

The Tigers Trust are currently recruiting for their summer NCS programme which aims to take away over 300 young people from July to September 2016.

For more information on the NCS programme contact the NCS team on ncs@tigerstrust.co.uk or 01482 358371

Primary PE & Sport +

The Tigers Trust provides opportunities for primary schools in Hull and East Riding to engage with the only Professional Football Club in the area... a good option if you want to raise the profile of sport within your school.

Our aim is to work together with schools, creating physically active and confident children who can achieve their personal best.

We achieve success by delivering high quality Physical Education and rewarding sporting opportunities... an outstanding use of the Sports Premium!

Please take time to read the following information.

If you wish to discuss any aspect of our offer then please do not hesitate to contact Richard Dexter, our School Sports Coordinator - contact details below.

PE Curriculum Support +

Our PE and Sports Specialists have the knowledge and experience to support every child’s development whilst also providing opportunities for school staff to improve their subject knowledge.

Learning programmes consist of a minimum of five lessons. We offer multi-skills and invasion games with various sporting options for both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.

Cost: £40 per lesson (one Senior and Junior Coach per class)

Teaching techniques consider all learning styles and activities are planned to enable every child to make progress. Lesson planning and assessment methods are shared with schools, meaning staff can reuse them in future lessons.

Beverley St. Nicholas Primary School are benefitting from being in our partnership. Yvette Fox, Year 4 teacher said, “I have enjoyed seeing how the lessons are planned and then delivered to maximise participation and skill development. The children have time to self-reflect and discuss each other’s performances, as well as discussing rules and strategies. The children responded very well to challenges and this approach develops pupils’ abilities physically, socially and intellectually.”

Extra Curricular Coaching +

Our After School Coaching or Lunchtime Activities encourage children to extend their involvement in sport beyond compulsory PE lessons.

We offer a minimum of 5 sessions covering a range of topics... multi-skills, multi-sports and football. Other activities or sport specific courses can be delivered on request.

Courses can be open to all or targeted at certain groups - boys, girls, classes. years, gifted and talented or those low on confidence.

Cost: Various options - contact us for details.

Competitions and Festivals +

In response to Ofsted reporting that not enough schools/children are participating in competitive sport. We offer a variety of competitive sporting opportunities which can be delivered either to individual schools or groups.

Children will learn and develop from winning and losing. Children feel excited and honoured to represent their school... it can really boost their self-esteem. We also believe that a school can enhance its reputation by providing the opportunities and performing well in events.

Kerry Scruton, PE Cordinator, Burlington Junior School said, “We have really enjoyed taking part in the Tigers Trust competitions. They have held competitions that we do not normally participate in as part of our local sports partnership, such as football, dodgeball and bench ball. We have had many new children join the extra curricular clubs that Tigers Trust run and this has given them an opportunity to take part in these sports at a competitive level. The children have all really enjoyed these events and it has increased their confidence levels. Receiving medals at the end of an event gives them a real sense of achievement. Our school strives to get as many children involved in sport as possible and Tigers Trust has allowed us to give more children this opportunity and we are looking forward to continuing working with them.”

Teacher Training Workshops +

In addition to the PE Curriculum Support whereby teachers/school staff observe and learn whilst supporting lessons, we also offer insightful and engaging training events.

We offer this support to schools/teachers in response to Ofsted's claim that teachers lack detailed subject knowledge to enable them to confidently plan, deliver and access quality physical education. By working closely with teachers we have developed a sustainable model which addresses the issues, this should ensure that schools and their pupils will benefit in future years.

Mike Smith, Assistant Headteacher, Holme On Spalding Moor Primary School said, “The staff have received some super CPD in the delivery of PE within school, particularly invasion games. This will ensure that the good work done by the Tigers Trust coaches can be continued throughout lessons delivered by teachers, in all year groups, right across school. This, together with our link with a high-profile professional sporting organisation, can only benefit our standards within our school.”

Testimonials +

Julie Ellis, Head teacher, Thorngumbald Primary

"When we received our Sports Funding in 2013, our priority was how best to use it to improve outcomes for all our children. We decided to invest in high quality coaching from an outside provider to give us the additional provision that we were looking for.

From the start we were impressed with the offer from the Tigers Trust. The multi-skills sessions which we bought into gave each of our children the opportunity to experience physical activity regardless of their own background in sport. In fact this was our prime reason for choosing multi-skills as we wanted to reach out to those children who do not attend sports clubs or play for teams outside of school.

Each class, over the year, received five sessions of multi-skills coaching. Ollie and his Apprentice (usually Matt have been very professional in planning for children from Foundation to Year 6. They have engaged the children in each age group, who look forward to their weekly sessions. The pupil comments in our end of year reports to parents demonstrate how the children have enjoyed the Tigers Trust coaching. Members of staff too have commented on how the sessions have moved their own professional development forward. Most are now using ideas they have gained from observing the sessions and in this way the coaching is promoting a higher level of sustainable expertise within the school.

Many thanks to Tiger Trust- we are already looking forward to next year’s sessions!"

Andy Rhodes, Head teacher, Spring Cottage Primary School.

"At the start of the last academic year (September 2013) Spring Cottage was looking to private sport providers to enhance the delivery of PE lessons and support in our curriculum delivery.

After meeting with the Tigers Trust coaches we were confident they would be able to meet our needs. Throughout the year they have worked with our Year 3 pupils enriching their lessons across a variety of sports. The coaches are clearly confident in the delivery of numerous games activities and the pupils have responded enthusiastically across all sessions. The impact the project has had has been mainly around people motivation and their clear enjoyment of sports. The sessions are lively, maintain good pace and ensure children of all abilities are able to access the curriculum.

We will be continuing our association and the delivery of these sessions again in the next academic year. Throughout the year the Tigers Trust has also supported a number of school events such as Sport Relief and Sport Days and again their involvement has motivated the pupils to participate willingly."
