Foundation continue successful Outwood partnership

Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation is pleased to announce we have partnered with the Outwood Grange Academies Trust for a third successive year.

Over the last three years, the partnership has gone from strength to strength, working towards a full-time PE Specialist model, with Trinity Education’s SSP Department supplying three PE Specialists to work and deliver in 12 OGAT Primary academies from across the district.

As part of the provision, the Foundation’s fantastic relationship with Leeds United Foundation’s Premier League Primary Stars will again continue into the next academic year.

This, once again, means that Leeds’ coaches will continue to deliver stimulating PE lessons in nine of the 12 schools for the full academic year.

We will also be supporting the provision through Rugby League delivery in the majority of the schools, offering children the chance to try and take up a new sport, with the hope of inspiring the next generation of players and supporters of Wakefield Trinity. 

Since their introduction, Wakefield SSP has made huge strides in the Physical Education sector, forming positive relationships with over 20 schools in the Yorkshire region.

Through the department’s recent success, we have been able to develop our own education department, which now includes the School Sports Partnership, STREAM Education, Traineeships & Apprenticeships and Rugby League Partnered Schools.

Speaking upon signing the extended deal, the Foundation’s Head of Education & Training, Luke Shale, said, “The last three years has seen our partnership with Outwood Grange Academies Trust grow, formulating into the provision we now offer.

“Every school, staff member and pupil has been brilliant over the past three years and we cannot wait to see what we can do over the next year.

“I am very pleased and excited to be heading into the third year working alongside Lee, his team and the 12 Primary academies.”

The Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation would like to thank OGAT, WTCF Rugby League Department & the Leeds United Foundation for all their support over the last three years, as we embark on a bigger and brighter 2021/22 academic year.
