Leeds headteacher praises Whites Foundation..

A head teacher from a Leeds Primary School has praised the Leeds United Foundation for their impact, hard work and commitment to making learning fun and engaging at his school.

Ian Holmes, head teacher at Thorner Primary School, works with the Leeds United Foundation on a weekly basis to deliver top education sessions for their pupils. The Foundation delivers Primary Stars sessions at Thorner Primary School and works with primary school pupils aged 7-11.

Adding to the excellent work of the Leeds United Foundation – Whites captain Liam Cooper  also visited the school to discuss the Leeds United values and to also talk to them about their recent writing competition.

Delivering lessons in maths, English, PSHE and Physical Education, the Foundation works across many Primary Schools across Leeds to deliver the national Premier League programme.

Ian Holmes, head teacher at Thorner Primary School, said: “The support from the Leeds United Foundation has been absolutely amazing. We have a really big focus on getting active across the whole school and that’s not just in PE but across the whole curriculum.

“All the Leeds United Foundation staff have really helped all the children develop with not only their skill set but also their confidence in PE and across their whole development.”

The Foundation recently announced that they have worked with almost 1000 pupils across the city delivering the Primary Stars programme – a fantastic result for the organisation.
