About The Community Scheme
The Cray Wanderers Community Scheme provides an education and mentoring service to the community through SPORT, MUSIC and ART, to help EMPOWER, ENHANCE and INSPIRE lives.
The scheme works with young people in the Greenwich, Bromley, Lewisham and Bexley areas, engaging with young people aged from 5 to 18. We run clubs that help them improve their physical and mental wellbeing, and we aim to achieve this by providing them with a safe and fun-filled environment for constructive exercise and activities. The young people who participate in our clubs benefit from an improved sense of self-worth and belonging, achieved primarily through sport. However, the scheme has now expanded by engaging with young people through Music, Art and Speech as well.
The Scheme was founded in 2009 by ex-Cray Wanderers Football Club star Tyrone Sterling, and close friend and fan of the club Reggie Oliver.
Staff Training Inset Days
As part of our fully comprehensive service in supporting primary schools with their delivery of physical education, we have devised a two hour ‘Teaching PE: Development Programme’ which can be delivered during inset days or after school.
The two hour programme is delivered as one-part theory, exploring modules such as ‘learning through small sided games’ and ‘the coaching process’. The second part is delivered through a practical session, which provides the teachers with an invaluable insight into the delivery of PE, through a small sided games approach.
Our seminars are great for:
• Building confidence in the delivery of PE
• Developing an understanding of new coaching techniques
• Enhancing staff relationships through enjoyable practical sessions
• Equipping teachers with high quality games to deliver
• Achieving excellence in PE
If you would like to book a staff training session for your school, or would like more information, simply get in touch.
