18 pupils from Dundee school, Grove Academy have selected a new pilot subject 'intro to sports development' as part of their curriculum in partnership with Leisure and Culture Dundee and Scottish FA.


Between April and June the pupils completed their level 1.1 Early Touches course with local football development officer Niall Nicolson. 


The group have since worked with Niall to plan a four week curriculum football physical literacy programme for P5 pupils at Eastern, Barnhill and Forthill Primary School, engaging with 200 pupils. 


At the end of the four-week delivery the students are planning a fun festival to bring the three schools together to celebrate the end of the programme. 


The programme will end with each pupil having completed 1.1 and 1.2 coaching qualifications, gained programme management planning experience and community coaching delivery.
