Football Fiesta to help implement Extended School Days in Wales

Fiesta partner up with Cadoxton Primary, Colcot Primary, Holton Primary and Oak Field Primary Schools to help trial the new Extended School Day in Wales.

A longer school day will be trialled in 14 schools in Wales next term with pupils receiving extra art, music and sport tuition as well as lessons. The £2m Welsh Government pilot scheme comes as Labour and Plaid in Cardiff Bay have pledged to look at ways to adapt the school day and term dates to modernise education.

Schools Outreach Manager, Jason Henley said “It’s a great opportunity, not only to be able to work with Cadoxton, Colcot, Holton and Oak Field Primary Schools but to be able to support the children who have been particularly affected by the Pandemic over the last 18 months.”

Football Fiesta will be implementing their curriculum based around four main pillars; ‘Physical’, by promoting fundamental skills and movement. ‘Thinking’, by encouraging problem solving and decision making. ‘Social’ skills with communication and team work, and ‘Health’ by promoting emotional well-being and positive relationships. These pillars will be executed through numerous activities and tasks across the 10 week programme.
