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.
All of our coaches are either qualified in, or working towards, the Association for Physical Education Level 3 Certificate in Supporting the Delivery of Physical Education and School Support.
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)
Our planned lessons use differentiation to challenge pupils and forge cross-curricular links including ICT, Literacy and Numeracy where and when appropriate.
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 from a huge range of sports including:
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: £40 per week or £2 per week for parents.
Competitions and Festivals +
One of the best ways for children to learn and develop in sport is by competing. Not only do they feel excited to take part and honoured to represent their school, but it's also a great way to boost their confidence and self-esteem.
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.
We run competitions in all kinds of sports, including:
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.”
To ensure your school doesn't miss out, send us your contact details and we'll keep you updated on new events (details are sent via email).
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.
Learning from our specialist coaches, your teachers can gain further knowledge, skills and understanding thus benefiting your school and pupils. Topics include Assessments in Physical Education and Differentiation. Delivered after school or can be arranged on Teacher Training Days.
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.”
To ensure you don't miss out, send us your contact details and we'll keep you updated on new events.

We have developed an interactive workshop for each value...
Sportsmanship, Teamwork, Attitiudes, Respect, Responsibility
Workshops can be delivered to classes, year groups or the whole of Key Stage 2. The children will be given a take home activity and competition with an opportunity to win prizes.
"The staff presented an assembly on Respect and the importance of positive attitudes to our children who were engrossed in the presentation and were 'buzzing' about it afterwards."
"To the children's surprise Chuba Akpom then took part in a Q&A session. He was very friendly, enthusiastic and at ease with the children. He was open to answering all of the questions the children asked."
"It was an experience the children will never forget about and continue to talk about."
-Rebecca Hyde, Year 4 teacher from Sidmouth Primary School.
Cost: £2 per child. Discounts available - contact us for details.

What other school's say:
"Our pupils received lots of interesting facts on the stadium tour, and then took part in a workshop about different values that are important in sport and in life."
"After our visit, we were able to do follow-up work on what we all learnt throughout the day. As a results, we've been able to engage otherwise hard-to-reach pupils. I would strongly recommend a stadium tour to other schools."
-Edward Stewart, Teacher at Collingwood Primary School

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."
