Football in School

The FA Tesco Skills have been coaching in our school


This term FA Tesco Skills coach Pete Sayer has been delivering football skills coaching to year 4 children in PE lessons. The children have really enjoyed Pete taking PE lessons, and learning through games and challenges.


The FA Tesco Skills programme started in 2007 and the current team of 158 coaches has delivered over four million child places and supported 21,000 teachers in 7,000 primary schools. The programme’s unique child-centred philosophy has established it as the leading youth football programme in England.  Its foundations are The FA’s ‘4-corner’ coaching model, developing children socially, technically, physically and psychologically, giving them more than just football skills but life skills such as confidence, teamwork, decision-making and problem-solving. The coaching is also based on The FA’s Future Game strategy, with the aim of developing young players who are comfortable on the ball, creative and have good game understanding.


This commitment to deliver high-quality, child-centred football coaching is delivered by expert, full-time FA Youth-qualified coaches. All lessons are delivered in line with the National Curriculum for PE, ensuring that all sessions are planned and delivered to the highest standards. 

Beyond school, boys and girls of any ability and experience are encouraged to join The FA Tesco Skills programme, to experience expert football coaching with free sessions during the school holidays (except Christmas) and at after-school Skills Centres through the academic year.
