Newcastle United Football Club

Shanklea Primary School works with NUFC Coaching In The Community Programme. We want all children to learn to play football the fun way.

The  busy programme includes weekly skills centres in term time, soccer schools in every school holiday, fun days and advanced coaching for both elite girls and boys.

The  football coaching programmes can support and complement physical education lessons and are delivered before or after school or during lunchtimes. Basic skills such as agility, balance and co-ordination are taught through drill sessions and games. Schemes of work are designed to inspire children of all abilities to take part.
