Ambergate have received brand new sports equipment courtesy of The Premier League.
Mr Buckberry, a GANF Teacher, originally heard about the grant from Premier League Primary Stars through a teacher friend, searched their website and found that they were offering grants for free sports equipment back in May, The grant application was accepted in July and the sports equipment arrived with us last week.
The large delivery of equipment arrived and was put straight to the test by Mr Maltby, PE Lead for GANF. Mr Maltby said, “I was overwhelmed by the amount of goods we received, Mr Buckberry has done exceptionally well for the school applying for the grant. The equipment will be put to great use helping the children in their PE lessons, and external fixtures.”
The new sports equipment included Premier League footballs, cones, bibs, 4 mini-goals, bean-bags, giant dice and much more!
Richard Scudamore, Executive Chairman of the Premier League and Football Foundation Trustee, said: “Congratulations to Ambergate on their successful application for a Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment pack. We hope the kit, coupled with the free downloadable online resources, will help teachers harness the popularity of football to inspire children in everything from Maths and English to teamwork and sport.”
