A large part of our work focuses on building links with schools.

Our schools programme has been developed to deliver a high-quality physical literacy curriculum, and also provides out of school opportunities for children to engage in extra-extended activities.

Derby County Community Trust is delighted to be able to provide schools with a comprehensive programme designed to complement and reinforce existing PE and academic syllabuses, based on developing an understanding of the theory behind physical activity.
