School Sport

The AFC Fylde Community Foundation, values all working relationships with our partner schools. We are committed to offer local schools, bespoke learning and development opportunities to children, their parents and the community alike.

Our Delivery

We are committed to innovation and, throughout each academic year, will provide the wider community with exclusive opportunities to participate in innovative engagement opportunities. We aim to stimulate, motivate and educate around the positive impact of engagement in physical activity, both on the individual and the school community as a whole. 

We believe it is imperative to share our delivery ethos with all partners, in order to benchmark our standards throughout the academic year.

 

Our commitments to partner schools include consistency in both staffing and delivery approach. 

Whilst working with each partner to develop a bespoke programme of delivery we strive to maintain a constant self-evaluation and quality assurance process, ensuring high standards are met at all times. 

Positive communication and transparency allows us to develop the best programmes possible as no two schools are completely alike, what may work for one school will need to be changed, tweaked and altered to work best for another.
