Part of Reds in the Community’s work focuses on building links with schools. The school coaching programme has been developed to deliver high quality curriculum time activities but also provide out of school opportunities for children to engage in extra curricular clubs.
All partner schools have the opportunity of Barnsley Football Club’s first team player visits to enhance the activities and pupil’s experience. The players have previously supported reading, science and health activities along with various other projects.
Other additional benefits include match tickets to support attendance and attainment and the invitation for schools to visit the Barnsley Football Club for an educational tour of the stadium.
